Know Your Status #FightStigma Campaign

12 Jun

Know Your Status is a student-run, research-based, volunteer organization at Duke University that provides free, rapid HIV testing to Duke students and members of the Durham, NC community.

“#FightStigma” is the new campaign being launched by Know Your Status. The campaign is targeted to college students and young adults, encouraging young people to reduce stigma around HIV by getting tested and encouraging others to get tested as well. If you are interested in volunteering or want to know more about Know Your Status, please email me at 

Below are a few photos from the campaign. Special thank you to Shayan Asadi for taking the photos.
