Students at William Paterson University in Wayne, N.J., have posted a video about the school’s efforts to have more individuals within the school community tested for HIV. The university’s health center offers testing for HIV to students, staff, and faculty. Testing takes only 15 minutes, with immediate results. Recently on World AIDS Day, December 1, the school held an HIV testing drive to heighten awareness of STDs and how to prevent them.
