What Better Time for Free STD Tests Than Valentine's Day?
But seriously, though.
Yesterday, DNAInfo reported that three hospitals in Brooklyn will open their clinics for completely, one-hundred-percent free STD testing. The hospitals include: East WIlliamsburg's CABS Health Center, Caribbean House Health Center and East New York's Dr. Betty Shabazz Health Center. Manhattan folk, y'all are on your own.
There, anyone can walk in and find out their Hepatitis C and HIV status in no less than 20 minutes. And, by"anyone," we mean those not doing any of the activities listed here for the less romantic types on this special, special day.
The effort was put together by the Community Healthcare Network as a safe and secure test for love. Because nothing says "I love you" on Valentine's Day like a negative STD test screening. Sorry, we had to.
