Special Health Resources for Texas Inc.

On June 28, 2014 we will be celebrating National HIV Testing Day at Broughton Park located at 801 Martin Luther King Blvd., Longview Texas 75602. National HIV Testing Day is critical to the fight against HIV/AIDS because it presents an opportunity for people nationwide to learn their HIV status, and to gain the knowledge they need to take control of their health and their lives. National HIV Testing Day also provides an invaluable opportunity to dispel the myths and stigma associated with HIV testing, and to reach those who have never been tested or who have engaged in high-risk behavior since their last test.
