Sexual Transmitted Disease (STD) Testing

Sexually active men and women may be at risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that approximately 19 million new STD infections occur each year in the United States - almost half of them among young people 15 - 24 years of age. The consistent and correct use of the male latex condom reduces the risk of STD infection. Free condoms are available at the Student Health Clinic.
