Happy Pride Des Moines!

It is Pride week here in Des Moines. The rest of Project HIM/The Project of Primary Health Care staff are busy preparing for this weekend’s festivities. As we have done in the previous years, we are providing FREE HIV and STD screening both Saturday and Sunday. (Saturday 3 pm – 7 pm, Sunday 12 pm – 4pm)

Project HIM 2015 Pride T-shirtThis year, we are offering the One-Minute INSTI HIV test along with other STD screening; including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis. We are once again partnering with Polk County Health Department to ensure that we can accommodate a higher number of people wanting to get tested.

Be sure to stop by our booth this weekend. Our Saturday booth activity is going Totally 80’s (because Belinda Carlisle) with glow-in-the-dark slap bracelets, and an interactive Polaroid Social Media Booth. Sunday’s booth activity will have your opportunity to win this year’s Project HIM Pride t-shirt and other amazing swag,* all while learning about PrEP.
