Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 2/05/2009 No comments
As part of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the Mecklenburg County Health Department is offering free, confidential HIV and syphilis testing tomorrow, 10 a.m to 4 p.m. at Johnson C. Smith University. The testing is open to the public and is being conducted in the Counseling and Testing Center on campus.

In Mecklenburg County, African-Americans account for 69 percent of all HIV/AIDS cases, but only make up 31 percent of the population.
