More than two thousand Illinoisans were diagnosed with HIV or AIDS last year and now health officials are urging everyone to get tested.  They say knowing your status puts you in control and in some cases, could help save your life. The state is participating in National HIV Testing Day on June 27th.  

To find a free testing location near you, call 800-AID AIDS or text IL plus your zipcode to 36363.
