LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –Lubbock has the highest rate of STD's in the nation with an estimated 3 out of 5 people testing positive for a sexually transmitted infection. That's according to MHMR, which says it is trying to fight the problem by offering free programs including mobile HIV/syphilis testing. In other words, if you're concerned that someone might recognize you while going to a clinic for STD testing, you don't have to worry because MHMR will send a drug counselor to you.

For more information on free, confidential, and mobile HIV and syphilis testing, contact Freddie Harris at MHMR. That number is 786-5246.
