The Fresno County Department of Public Health and the Community Action Council for HIV/AIDS World AIDS Day Committee are hosting a photo exhibit of posters from The Day With HIV campaign from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday at the Fresno Art Museum, 2233 N. First St.
A Day with HIV collects pictures that people take of themselves on the same day to turn snapshots and “selfies” into a photo album of life with HIV. For the past two years, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “Let’s Stop HIV Together” campaign has joined with Positively Aware, a nonprofit HIV/AIDS treatment journal, to display the images from the annual A Day With HIV campaign at local events across the country.
The display at the Fresno Art Museum is open to the public. There is a $5 charge to the general public. Children under 5 and Fresno Art Museum members are admitted free.
In commemoration of the event, the county health department’s HIV mobile testing unit will offer free Rapid HIV Testing from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday in the parking lot in front of the museum. Test results will be available in 20 minutes and are confidential.
For more information about the exhibit and the free testing, contact Jena Adams at 559-600-3434.
