National HIV Testing Day Event at KCHD
- KCHD in partnership with Samaritan Ministry is offering free, confidential HIV testing at the main health department, 140 Dameron Ave., on Friday, June 25 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The tests are conducted with a simple finger prick and provide results in 20 minutes.
