Equal is a registered student organization at the main campus of the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for students to interact and network with each other, engage in social activities, and develop personal character without fear of discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, and to provide support and resources for students who have experienced such discrimination.
UCF Health Services has partnered with the Orange County Health Department to bring FREE STD testing to campus. The tests will screen for gonorrhea and chlamydia ONLY. If you are 25 or younger and having sex, you should be tested for STDs at least once a year — even if you don’t have symptoms.
When: Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013
Time: 9 am – 4 pm*
Where: UCF Health Center, 2nd floor conference room
