June 7, 2012 - The Chatham CARE Center, a Coastal Health District program center for expanded HIV services, will offer free HIV testing at several events throughout the month of June.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one out of five people living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. is unaware of their HIV status. These events provide an opportunity for people to learn of their HIV status and to gain knowledge to take control of their lives. The Chatham CARE Center is pleased to offer free HIV testing as part of this global effort.
