National HIV Testing Day is Thursday, June 27. The Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group and Prisma Health–Midlands join the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in encouraging everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 to be tested for HIV at least once.
Here are six things to know about HIV, who is at greatest risk, and the importance of testing and treatment:
The Palmetto Health-USC Immunology Center, located at 1 Medical Park Drive, Suite 420, offers comprehensive services in the diagnosis, treatment and management of HIV. Services offered include HIV testing as well as pre-exposure prophylaxis, also known as PrEP. For patients who are diagnosed with HIV, our specialists formulate individually tailored management plans.
The Immunology Center is the lead agency for the Midlands Care Consortium for the care of HIV/AIDS patients through a federally funded Ryan White Title II grant.
For more information about PrEP, testing or management of HIV, or to schedule an appointment, contact the Palmetto Health-USC Immunology Center at 803-545-5350.
