The Check It Project Community Partner Presentation
The Check It Project is a Tulane University Research Project that offers free STD testing to young African American men. We offer free testing, free treatment options for participants and partners, as well as compensation. Our project partners with local barbershops, colleges/universities and other non-clinical venues to reach 15-24 year old African American men who have sex with women, are new to testing, and do not have symptoms. The website, social media, and community influencers are used to increase sexual health awareness and screening of young black men. To date, the team has enrolled more than 1,200 participants and hopes to develop a road map for male screening for chlamydia.
