The DeKalb County Board of Health encourages the community to join in celebrating National HIV Testing Day on Friday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the 285 Flea Market in Decatur.

The health department is providing free rapid HIV tests, HIV education and chronic disease prevention, healthy living and nutrition tips; and gift bags for test recipients.

“We need to ensure this deadly disease continues to remain on the community’s radar. Education and proper, timely treatment are critical for preventing the transmission of the virus,” said Dr. S. Elizabeth Ford, District Director of the DeKalb County Board of Health. The goal of this event is to raise awareness about the importance of HIV testing and to ensure people get tested for HIV, know their status and get linked to care and treatment services.
