If you’ve ever been sexually active, just a friendly reminder to get that shit checked.
Tuesday during lunch, you can walk down to the Green Street Arts Center or take a van from Usdan down, every half hour starting at 10 am.
Last year a remarkable 0% of those tested were positive for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis. Help prevent any nasty surprises this year (for you or anyone else), and get tested:
ASHA’s beloved free STI testing event is back and better than ever! AIDS and Sexual Health Awareness, along with the Connecticut Department of Public Health have brought this event to campus annually for many years.
This year, testing will be at the Green Street Arts Center instead of at Eclectic, and it will be open to all Middletown residents, in addition to Wesleyan students. But as always, the event will be completely free and confidential, and students will have the opportunity to be tested for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, and HIV.
Why get tested? By age 25, an estimated one in two sexually active young people in the U.S. will get an STI. Are you sure you don’t have an STI? The most common symptom of an STI is having no symptoms at all!
So get tested! It’s easy. You can get tested from 10am to 2pm on Tuesday, April 13th. VANS WILL LEAVE USDAN EVERY 30 MINUTES (starting at 10am) to Green Street and back. You can also walk (it’s super close!) to Green Street Arts Center, which is at 51 Green Street, by the corner of Main Street. Walking maps will be available at Usdan, and there will be complimentary refreshments. Hope to see you there!
Date: Tuesday April 13
Time: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Place: Green Street Arts Center (Green St. and Main St.)
