Take Control,” and will be able to choose from one of many incentives, including coupons and food items from Healthy World Café, Rita’s Italian Ice, Subway, Gold’s Gym, Jimmy Johns, Wendy’s, Marcello’s Pizza, York City Pretzel Company and more.

Centers for Disease Control recommends that health care providers test everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 at least once as part of routine health care. One in seven people in the United States who have HIV do not know they are infected. Family First Health provides free, confidential HIV testing at all five locations year-round, as part of routine medical care. In 2014, staff performed nearly 3,500 tests.
