Local Churches & HIV Testing Organization Teams Up with Walgreens to Launch KYS with a little TLC

According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, nearly 1.2 million Americans are now living with HIV infection, and about 50,000 people become infected every year. Yet, 20 percent to 25 percent of people who have HIV do not know they are infected. This is why the Task Force recommends that people ages 15 to 65 should be tested for HIV at least once.

Gospel Against AIDS is leading the way combining testing, learning and counseling with the faith-based community and launching testing sites at Detroit area Walgreens to offer free HIV testing, counseling as well as encouraging community members to know their HIV status.

I spoke with Rosalind Andrews Worthy Executive Director of Gospel Against AIDS about how this initiative came about and where listeners can get tested… Check out our Conversation Here:

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been color, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
