Mayor Tom Barrett and Commissioner of Health Bevan K. Baker have announced that the City of Milwaukee Health Department has partnered with Diverse & Resilient to expand testing services for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV to its Northwest Health Center (7630 W. Mill Rd.).
“Diverse and Resilient is a trusted partner in the work to eliminate health disparities, and we are proud to welcome them to our Northwest Health Center,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “The expansion of screening and testing benefits residents citywide, and I encourage people of all ages to get tested and know their status.”
“Providing confidential testing and counseling services is welcome at a time when we continue to see too-high rates of STIs in our community,” said Commissioner of Health Bevan K.

Mondays: 12:15-4 p.m.
Tuesdays: 12:15-4 p.m.
Thursdays: 3-6 p.m.
