Volunteers: Public Health

Mission Statement

The Public Health discipline provides confidential HIV testing and counseling services to the University Area Community and to University of South Florida students at no cost.

Our goal is to address stigma, raise awareness, and facilitate greater access to care through impactful community engagement.

The BRIDGE Clinic provides an interdisciplinary environment where Public Health students are trained to be community leaders in HIV awareness and prevention.
