Free Youth HIV Testing at Capital Square Today

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, VA - On Thursday, July 25, the first public HIV Testing of youth will be held at Capitol Square from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. and in Carytown by Can Can Restaruant from 12:15 to 1 p.m.

Using the recently approved oral swab home test kits, TeenAIDS and Dr. John Chittick will test consenting older teens 17 and up. A younger teen can be tested if a parent is there to sign permission.

Live testing, while controversial, helps break the stigma surrounding AIDS among youth especially, and helps get more people tested.
