Kent State will host free and confidential HIV testing on campus April 15 from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., according to Community AIDS Network/Akron Pride Initiative (CANAPI) website.

“It’s important for students who are sexually active or are engaging in drug activities to get tested regularly so they know their status to make sure they are healthy or to prevent spreading the disease,” said Joshua Morgan, risk reduction and outreach coordinator of CANAPI.

Morgan, an HIV/AIDS educator, will administer the tests to students, faculty and staff with appointments.

Appointments last between 15-20 minutes, and those tested will receive their results before they leave.

Morgan said he will return to Kent to do more testing next month.

To make an appointment, call the Office of Health Promotion at (330) 672-2320.
