Maryland: Health Officials Hope to Raise STD Awareness

September 12, 2008

The health departments of Prince George's and Montgomery counties are cooperating on a new awareness campaign that aims to reduce the area's high rates of STDs. "Maryland ranks fifth in the United States for the number of primary and secondary syphilis cases and third for the number of AIDS cases reported," said Donald Shell, health officer for Prince George's, who hopes the effort will motivate more residents to access testing and treatment. Metrobus ads in both counties will help carry the message.
