SIHF Healthcare issued the following announcement on Dec. 3.
SIHF Healthcare is emphasizing the importance of sexual health by providing walk-in STD testing for men and women at its health center in Alton to raise awareness of this important topic.

As long as you come in between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm, Monday - Friday, we’ll make sure you are seen.”
There are multiple providers at this SIHF health center that can assist with walk-in testing for STDs including: Chlamydia, Genital Herpes, Gonorrhea, HIV, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis and Hepatitis.
