“We’re trying to promote testing out here just to raise awareness in the community and promote HIV testing testing in a community that doesn’t get an opportunity to be tested often and is lacking maybe in some of the information that other communities get,” she said.

The health department offers free HIV testing at its Newtown Pike location on Fridays.
