Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson to Team Up with Walgreens and Greater Than AIDS to Provide Free HIV Testing in Observance of National HIV Testing Day

MIAMI, FL – In observance of National HIV Testing Day (NHTD), Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) will team up with Walgreens, Greater Than AIDS, and several health clinics throughout Miami-Dade County to offer free HIV testing.

Frederica S Wilson“I have long said that the best way to end the spread of HIV is to get tested, and if you are HIV positive receive treatment,” said Congresswoman Wilson.  “Miami-Dade County has the highest number of new HIV cases in the country, and if we can help end the spread of HIV in South Florida it will make a huge difference.  I am appealing to everyone to get tested and know your status.”

Congresswoman Wilson sponsored several bills to boost HIV/AIDS education and awareness throughout her career in public service.  This year marks the 15th anniversary of a bill she sponsored in the Florida legislature to mandate HIV testing for prisoners upon their release from Florida prisons.  The purpose of the bill was to confirm prisoners’ HIV status as they re-enter society and connect them to care if they were HIV positive.

Free confidential HIV testing will be provided at the following locations:
