WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – SEEDS of Healing proudly presents its HIV Testing Day event from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on June 27.

Getting tested for HIV is an act of self-care, and knowing your HIV status provides vital information that will help you stay healthy.

CDC studies show that about 13% of people in the United States do not know their HIV status.

National HIV Testing Day normalizes discussion about HIV, working to get people to testing centers across the country.

Additionally, increased testing and linkage to care allows us to prevent further transmission of HIV.

SEEDS of Healing offers free rapid HIV tests to the public.

The results of these rapid tests are available within 20 minutes.

While awaiting the results, attendees are invited to meet the SEEDS of Healing team and enjoy refreshments, music, a photo booth and other goodies.

Additionally, each person tested will receive a $10 gift card.

SEEDS of Healing Inc. is located at:

1624 Princess Street

Wilmington, North Carolina 28401

The HIV testing event will take place on June 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
