In observance of National HIV Testing Day on Friday, June 27, the Beaumont Public Health Department is promoting the theme “Take the Test, Take Control”. Nearly 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and almost one in six is unaware that they are infected. The earlier medical care is started, the better chances are of living a longer, healthier life. Early medical care also lowers the chances of passing the infection to others. For more information call Beaumont Public Health at (409) 832-4000.
