Free AIDS testing offered Tuesday

(WMC-TV) - Over 8,000 people are living with AIDS in Memphis and Shelby County.

In observance of World AIDS day, free testing is being offered.

Although Worlds AIDS day is Sunday, Tennessee State Representative G.A. Hardaway hosted testing at three locations. Representative Hardaway said Monday is a part of a year-long series aimed at keeping Mid-Southerners healthy.

"What we want to do today is bring the ability to get information, bring the awareness, raise the awareness bring the testing to the communities that may not otherwise seek it on their own," said Hardaway.

The event also had blood pressure and cholesterol testing.

Even if you missed Monday's event, there are two more free testing events. They are Tuesday, November 26th, and the times are as follows:

  • 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Tillman Police Station, 426 Tillman Street
  • 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Airways Station, 2234 Truitt at the Memphis Police Department
