USF student Chandler Rumbaugh, 21, said he first turned to the clinic two or three years ago for routine HIV and STI testing, as well as to learn more about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis).
"It feels like a second home. Everybody there is genuinely so happy, so nice, so patient, so understanding," said Rumbaugh. "I'd tell anybody, 'If you need to go, go. They will take care of you. They want to help you.'"
