January 6, 2009
More than 1,000 Chicago teenagers were tested for HIV on Saturday as part of the second annual Teen Test Day at the South Shore Cultural Center, the Chicago Tribune reports. Many of the teenagers said they are not sexually active but believed it was a good idea to receive the no-cost tests, the Tribune reports. Regina Hampton, a case manager for the Circle Family HealthCare Network who administered the tests, said, "It's good to get [teens] in the habit [of being tested for HIV] even if they haven't been sexually active."
