Prevention is Power: National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Posted:

In light of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the Mae Simmons Community Center is trying to uplift and inform the community about the resources available to find and treat HIV infections with a free campaign called "Prevention Is Power." 

Freddie Harris,  an MHMR HIV Outreach Worker, said, in an interview on HealthWise at 5, that getting tested for HIV is as easy and private as a take home test.  Mr. Harris added, "We're the first agency that's doing something new in Lubbock.  We're doing the 'Oral-Quick'.  Within 15 to 20 minutes, we can let you know if you're HIV positive or negative, just by swabbing your mouth."

The event is being held Saturday, February 2nd, at the Mae Simmons Community Center at 2004 Oak Street from 1 p.m. untill 4 p.m.. Several health screenings will be available and the event is free.
