Here’s What’s Up: Week of August 24th


Here’s What’s Up: Week of August 24th

It is Monday, and for many it’s the start of a new school year.  That also means that our Project HIM crew here at The Project of Primary Health Care will be embarking on another campus tour.  More details on this in the coming weeks.

We are excited to announce that we are working on providing HIV/STI testing at locations throughout the Des Moines metro, utilizing The Project’s van.  We’re still in the process of figuring out the logistics, but be sure to be on the look-out for our Mobile Testing Van (MTV) (Yup! That’s what we’re going to call it. I just decided.) sometime this fall.  Be sure to follow us on Twitter to get updates on our MTV’s location, testing time, and wait time.

In the meantime, our regular testing hours are as follows:

Testing hours for Primary Health Care – University Ave. clinic

  • Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Tuesday 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Friday 9:00 – 2:00 pm

Testing hours for Primary Health Care – Ames clinic

  • Every 3rd Thursdays 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Reserve your spot on our online scheduler.  Select Primary Health Care – Ames for “Location”.
