National HIV Testing Day is June 27

Tens of thousands of Americans continue to be diagnosed with HIV each year. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.1 million Americans have HIV. One in 7 of them don’t know they have the disease.

Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should be tested for HIV at least once during their lifetime. For some who are at higher risk of getting HIV, more frequent testing is recommended. If you get tested and find out that you have HIV, starting treatment as soon as possible can help you stay healthy and reduce the chance that you can pass the virus to others. Treatment is prevention. And if you are HIV negative, you can learn how to prevent becoming infected.

If you haven’t been tested for HIV, make an appointment with your health care provider today by calling (360) 676-6177. A simple blood test is all that is needed. Take a step towards ending the HIV epidemic.

Partnering with Community Health Plan of Washington for Healthy Kids

In 1992, community health centers in Washington joined together to create Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW). The goal was to create a health insurance plan for patients who were not covered by traditional insurance companies. Today, CHPW and the community health centers continue their strong relationship. As a community health center, we know that CHPW supports our mission, and it is our health plan of choice.

Unity Care NW is proud to participate in Community Health Plan of Washington’s Children First Program to encourage and reward eligible members for receiving important health care services. CHPW’s Children First Program includes a Prenatal Program and a Well Child Program. The Prenatal Program offers a $65 gift card for a car seat to CHPW members who are pregnant after they have two prenatal checkups. In the Well Child Program, families with kids who are CHPW members can receive a $20 gift card kid for every well-child check-up that includes up-to-date immunizations.

Together, Unity Care and CHPW work to keep kids healthy and get them off to a great start for a lifetime of good health. Learn more about the Children First Program here. Call Unity Care NW at (360) 676-6177 to schedule a well-child visit for your child today.
