National HIV Testing Day - June 27, 2017

The 2017 theme is “Test Your Way. Do It Today.”

Doing It is a new national HIV testing and prevention campaign designed to motivate all adults to get tested for HIV and know their status.  Doing It delivers the message that HIV testing should be a part of everyone’s regular health routine to keep ourselves and our community healthy. He’s doing it. She’s doing it. We’re doing it. YOU should be doing it, too.

The only way to know for sure whether you have HIV is to get tested. CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care.

Doing it  testing for HIV can give you important information and help keep you and others safe. About one in eight people in the United States who have HIV don’t know they have it. Knowing your HIV status can give you peace of mind and testing is the only way you can know for sure. Knowing your status is also important because it helps you make healthy decisions to prevent getting or transmitting HIV. HIV testing is a normal part of life and if everyone else is doing it, you can too!.

Serving as an advertising agency for the Division of HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis, the J529 Public Relations student cohort will develop an advertising and outreach campaign for PrEP. Their work will finish in April with the launch of the campaign in selected jurisdictions of the state, with hopes of expanding statewide by the end of the year.

J529 Public Relations Campaign Course Description:

In this capstone course, we will meld the theories and methodologies of public relations and apply that knowledge and those skills to one or more real-world clients with real-world PR problems or opportunities. In addition to analyzing cases and methods, we will research, analyze, plan, implement and evaluate a small-group public relations campaign, as well as critique campaigns done by others. You’ll follow campaign practices consistent with the theories, methods, standards and ethics used in the Public Relations Society of America’s accreditation process.
