Acknowledging World AIDS Day

Image that says Stop AIDS get tested

World AIDS Day is December 1, but it is important to remember that HIV and AIDS are always with us, and today is the day to learn how to protect your health now and in the future. 

It's estimated that at least half of all new HIV infections in the U.S. are among people under 25, and the majority of young people are infected sexually. Prevention is the best defense against infection from HIV and other STI's. 

University Health Services and the Student Nurses Association is bringing you the most current information and resources about HIV and AIDS. Find information about the types of testing available and where you can get tested. Make a red ribbon to show your support for those living with HIV and AIDS.
