DMC Testing Program Results Presented at SPH Research Day

Cymara Tolbert, MPH (candidate) spent her year at St. Chris performing a program evaluation of our testing program. She presented these results at the annual Drexel School of Public Health Annual Poster Presentation and Awards Reception. Her analysis showed an overall positivity rate of 2% in our community based testing program, and that we are being successful in reaching our target populations of high risk for HIV youth in Philadelphia. We will continue to refine our testing program based on her findings.

  1. I hope people take advantage and get tested. Knowing your status and your partner's status can help prevent new infections. But we are still in need of a cure for the millions currently living with HIV. Please support re:solve AIDS. The re:solve AIDS project is raising money to get a promising AIDS vaccine through human testing so that it can be produced and made available to everyone who needs it. http://bit.ly/e4ehI7
