April is STD Awareness Month

In recognition of “National STD Awareness Month” the Genesee County Health Department (GCHD) is offering a
“Get Yourself Tested” (GYT) health fair on Wednesday, April 28, 2010 from 9:00am to 2:00pm. The free health fair will be held in the commons area on the second floor of the Floyd J. McCree Courts and Human Services Building located at 630 S. Saginaw St., Flint, Michigan, 48502.

The Get Yourself Tested health fair is part of a national movement to encourage testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Of the approximately 19 million new STD’s that occur every year in the United States, most will go undiagnosed. Diagnosis and treatment of STD’s is critical to safe-guarding personal health, fostering sexual responsibility and addressing the wider STD epidemic. Testing for STD’s is easier than
ever before and new Rapid HIV tests can provide results as quickly as 20 minutes.

The GCHD encourages anyone who is sexually active to get tested and offers STD and HIV testing at the GCHD Adult/Teen Walk-In Clinic at the McCree South clinic
location: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 7:45am-4:00pm and Tuesday from 12:45pm-4:00pm. The GCHD Burton Branch, G-3373 S. Saginaw St., Burton, offers STD
testing Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 8:00 am-4:00pm, Tuesday 1:00pm-4:00pm, and Thursday 12:00-7:00pm. Please visit www.gchd.us for additional information.
