HEART in the Bronx

Einstein's HEART (HIV Education and Rapid Testing) partners with the Adolescent AIDS Program (AAP) of Montefiore to provide free rapid HIV testing weekly at Bronx Community College and Lehman College. HEART members are medical students at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. We receive training from AAP on HIV testing, peer education, sexual history taking, and sexual health counseling, as well as Point-of-Care certification from Montefiore. We also visit Bronx middle and high schools to teach students about contraception, STDs, and HIV, and to provide information on clinical resources and testing options.
