Young people between the ages of 15 and 24 account for 50% of all new sexually transmitted infections (STIs), although they represent just 25% of the sexually experienced population.
To help teens manage their sexual wellness, Erie Family Health Center, 1285 Hartrey Ave., offers confidential, walk-in STI and HIV testing from 1-4:30 p.m. each Friday.
Erie Family Health Center also offers free pregnancy testing that includes a women’s health education consultation.
Expert prenatal care is also available to uninsured patients and those enrolled in insurance plans accepted at Erie.
No appointments are necessary, and testing is free.
