Aletheia House kicked off the 2013 National HIV Testing Day with a special pre-celebration on June 26th. The event, "Parade Into Testing" began with a parade at 10:00 am and was followed by a block party at the Aletheia House Women's, Wellness, and Prevention facility located in Avondale. This year's National HIV Testing Day theme was “Take the Test. Take Control".
Amazing partners such as AIDS Alabama, UAB 1917 Clinic, Alabama Department of Public Health, Lawson State Community College, and Girls Inc came together for a fun-filled day that included free testing, snacks, and entertainment. AIDS Alabama brought their mobile testing unit and Pastor Patrick Sellers from Mount Zion Baptist Church served as the parade grand marshall.
Community partners continued the celebration of National HIV Testing Day by providing free HIV testing for the rest of the week at the Walgreen's on Clairmont Avenue.
