Everyone at AVOL and Macy's, would like to wish you a fun, safe, out and proud PRIDE month! And don't forget to let AVOL be your gateway to updated information on HIV testing, Hep C, and other sexually transmitted infections. We can help you get connected to PrEP. And, if you are a person living with HIV and are out of care, reach out and let us help you get reconnected. We are honored to be able to serve. Together we can end HIV in Kentucky!
