New Yorkers go to Union Square for various reasons. Whether it be to peruse the farmer's market, doing a little shopping, or just to catch their next train, but on Thursday, June 27 you can also get a free HIV test. To mark National HIV Testing Day, the Community Healthcare Network (CHN) will provide all-day free HIV tests and Hepatitis C screenings, as well as meningitis vaccines.
The HIV tests take 20 minutes for the results, so to make the wait more bearable there will be free massages, snacks, life-coaching, and stretching workshops while you wait. The CHN's mobile van will be in the park from 9am-5pm, so stop by to find out your status, and get your meningitis vaccine before the weekend's Pride festivities!
