Angela Townsend of The Plain Dealer is reporting that select Walgreens are offering free HIV testing to coincide with National HIV Testing Day which is today, June 27, 2014.

Townsend writes:

“Walgreens, the nation’s largest drugstore chain, is joining forces with Care Alliance Health Center and the national initiative Greater Than AIDS to provide free HIV testing at two local Walgreens stores June 26-28.”

Townsend adds:

“About 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV; of those, about 16 percent do not know they are infected, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For the fourth straight year, Walgreens is offering the tests at more than 100 locations across the country.”

Test results will be given on site.
