Know Your Status

On Saturday, April 25 our group is hosting a FREE HIV testing event at the College of William and Mary!

The testing will be provided by WAN (Williamsburg AIDS Network), and will be confidential in the James Room upstairs in the Sadler Center.  There will be entertainment by Passing Notes, Reveille, John Kelly and the Quick Snipes, Irish Dance Club, Clayton Perry, and more in Lodge 1 throughout the day, as well as showings of our documentary.  We will also be selling our jewelry from Tanzania.

The test WAN is using is a rapid test, meaning it only takes 20 minutes for the results and it just takes a cheek swab!
