Let’s Get Tested: National HIV Testing Day at Walgreens (1:27)

March 12, 2020 0 By Jose Scott


On National HIV testing day, we all kind of
promote that there’s free testing and we make it a positive and safe environment. Walgreens Center of Excellence stores provide
services that are customized for people living with HIV in the communities where they live. As a pharmacist, Greater Than AIDS gives me
the opportunity to help people and it’s just a natural service that we want to be able
to provide to our customers. We do free HIV testing and we just want everyone
to get tested and know their status. While they’re just shopping or waiting for
their prescription, they could just have a quick test and it makes it part of their routine. It’s your average Joes, your teachers, your
doctors, your lawyers. HIV/AIDS is something in our society that
we need to tackle together. We need to get rid of the stigma that only
certain people can become HIV infected Everybody working at Walgreens is truly committed
to the community, a part of the community, and Greater Than AIDS campaign is just all
about community. If you’re servicing the health care community,
there’s no way that you cannot be a part of this movement.
