Tapestry Health offering free HIV testing

In order to encourage individuals to know their HIV status, Tapestry Health will provide free, confidential rapid HIV counseling and testing at an area location. The rapid HIV test is an oral swab that does not require blood and results are available 20 minutes after the test is taken. Testing will take place in their mobile health van on June 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Magazine Park, Springfield.

Tapestry Health provides HIV testing and other HIV/AIDS services on a free and sliding fee scale at all of the seven health services sites, including their clinic in Northampton.

"With one in four HIV infected individuals not being aware of their status, it is imperative that people have as many opportunities to get tested as possible. We are committed to providing free rapid HIV testing to encourage people to get tested in a confidential and accessible way that works for them," said Tapestry Health's Director of Outreach Robert Reardon.
