Today is National Black HIV-AIDS Day.
A press conference was held at the Leon County The Life Sciences Of Washington Inc. Building in Tallahassee.
Experts from the Leon County Health Department reminded folks in the community to get tested if you think you are HIV or AIDS positive. They says that awareness and intervention is the key for folks in the community to learn about HIV and AIDS.
"So many people don't know their status, so what we're trying to do is bring awareness to today's event so that a person will know their status," said Dale Harrison, Leon County Health Department, STD HIV Program Manager.
The Leon County Health Department says they now offer a 20-minute test to see if you're HIV positive.
