11/29/2018, 6 a.m.
In honor of World AIDS Day, free HIV testing will be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at The Valentine, 1015 E. Clay St.
The effort is a partnership between the Downtown museum, Diversity Richmond and Nationz Foundation, a nonprofit that provides education and information on HIV prevention, health and wellness.
The foundation’s Mobile Testing Unit & Food Pantry will be on site at the museum to provide the tests.
“The Valentine remains committed to our mission of pursuing community engagement and providing relevant programming to the people of the region,” Bill Martin, director of The Valentine, stated, noting the event’s connection to the museum’s public health exhibition, “Pandemic: Richmond.”
“We look forward to additional partnerships like this that help us use our history to inform our present and shape the future,” he stated.
