June 27, 2016 is National HIV Testing Day. Walgreens is teaming up with local health departments to offer free HIV testing from June 23rd to June 25th.
About 200 Walgreens stores are offering free HIV testing, assisted by employees of local health departments. Testing is anonymous. Some tests take one minute for results, while others take 20 minutes. To find a Walgreens near you for this test, visit www.greaterthan.org.
Stores are also distributing informational booklets on what to do after you are tested. If you test negative but may put yourself at risk, you may consider the PrEP daily pill to help you stay HIV negative.
Listen in as Glen Pietrandoni, Senior Director of Virology from Walgreens, shares what you need to know about this testing event.
