DETROIT (WWJ) - In recognition of and raising awareness to National HIV Testing Day, S.T.A.R. Foundation is hosting a community collaboration of HIV testing — partnering with Wayne State University Physicians Group, Sinai Grace Specialty Care, Detroit Receiving Hospital, Youthville Detroit, and Horizon’s Project — from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27.

Free testing locations include:

  • Wayne State University Physicians Group
    3750 Woodward Ave, Ste. 203
    Detroit, Michigan 48201
  • WSU/Sinai Grace Specialty Care
    Sinai Grace Professional Building

  • Horizons Project **Testing from 12 – 4 pm**

On a first-come-first-serve basis, incentives such as gift cards and bags filled with wonderful goodies will be provided to those who get tested, and this is all being sponsored by MedCart Specialty Pharmacy and BET Rap-It-Up.

From noon until 4 p.m., there will be food, fun, music, and youth testing provided by the Horizons Project, and an opportunity for youth to meet and speak with guest celebrities/public figures at Youthville Detroit.

Four lucky young ladies will receive a makeover by “Style U Glam” and a make-up gift bag provided by Motives for LaLa. This is an effort to encourage youth (whom are sexually active) between the ages of 13 to 20 to get tested and stay protected.
