Special testing event marks National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day

National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day

Monday was National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day, and to honor the day, our staff provided special free testing on campus for University of Kentucky students in addition to normal testing hours at 650 Newtown Pike.

In the United States, almost 10,000 people ages 13 to 24 were diagnosed with HIV in 2014, and 81 percent of those were ages 20-24.

In addition to social media posts, the special event received coverage in the UK student newspaper, The Kentucky Kernel.
