Graham Health Center to offer free STI tests

By Brian Johnston

The Graham Health Center will offer free tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea at Vandenberg Hall Feb. 26 from 4:30-6 p.m.

The tests are completely anonymous and results will be given in one week, according to GHC Director Nancy Jensen. Those who test positive for either sexually transmitted infection may be eligible for free treatment, as both are 100 percent curable.

One in two sexually active young people will get a sexually transmitted infection by 25, according to the Get Yourself Tested website.

Jansen said the GHC will offer 75 tests on a first come, first serve basis. The GHC offers Get Yourself Tested events twice a year.
