HIV Testing @ HEO

Dedicated to supporting the healthy lifestyle choices of students by providing health and wellness education and resources.

HIV Testing

Free, rapid HIV antibody testing is conducted weekly by an HIV Testing Counselor certified through Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. We use the INSTI Rapid HIV1/HIV2 antibody test, which requires a droplet of blood via finger stick and delivers results in 1 minute.

Testing Schedule: Tuesdays 11am-1 pm

1st Tuesday of the month at the Queer Resource Center
All other Tuesdays at HEO
