Wednesday is World Aids Day

World Aids Day takes place each year on December 1st. This day is an opportunity for everyone to come together and show support for those living with HIV or those who have lost their life or a loved one to HIV.

HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune system. If left untreated, it can leads to AIDS, which is why it is so important that you be tested if you suspect you have HIV.

Here at LaSante Health Center, we stand in unity with our community to show support for those who are currently living with HIV and to remember those who have been lost to the disease. As a health center that is actively involved in the community, we have seen firsthand the need for better care for HIV patients, which is why we offer clinical and mental health services for those living with HIV.
