Confidential HIV testing for students is currently being offered at the Student Health Center in LoGrasso Hall to lead up to World AIDS Day, which will be observed on Saturday, Dec. 1.

Results of the simple finger stick blood test for HIV are known within 10 minutes, said Deborah Dibble, director of the Student Health Center. Tests will be performed Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments are not necessary.

There is no cost for the test, which has been offered at Fredonia for the last four years.

The theme of this year’s World AIDS Day, which will commemorate its 30th anniversary, is “Know Your Status.” It is believed that HIV testing is essential for expanding treatment and ensuring that all people living with HIV can lead healthy and productive lives.
