When a friend recently asked me where she could go for an oral HIV test, I referred to her a number of great organizations around Chittenden County that offer anonymous, free, rapid oral testing. However, I must admit, it was a pain in the neck to scour Google for the contact info and testing times (which, by the way, weren't always accurate). So, I was glad to hear about, a new website where you can find testing sites listed by county. You can also get info about the testing process and where to find quality care if you test positive for HIV.  The site is maintained by a "group of Vermont HIV health care professionals, community support organizations, and people living with HIV/AIDS, dedicated to providing health information and care to those who have, or are at risk for HIV/AIDS." Pretty cool.

With this Saturday being National HIV Testing Day, it's a good time to check out the site and consider getting tested. Knowledge is power.

To your sexual health,
