We offer free and confidential testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in a variety of locations.
You may visit us at:
Mobile Medical Unit
at various community sites (see our Calendar of Events)
C2P Youth Center
Washington Park on Tuesday nights at 5531 S. Russell Dr.
Your HIV testing session will include a rapid test, with results available in as little as 60 seconds, plus a blood draw for more advanced lab-based testing. We also offer testing for syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and Hepatitis B & C. Patients in need of linkage to HIV care, PrEP (a daily medication taken to prevent HIV infection), or STI treatment will be referred to an appropriate medical provider.
“We advocate and support our patients with dignity, respect, and compassion.”
— Linda Walsh, Nurse Practitioner
