On World AIDS Day Tuesday, the county health department, the University of Maryland School of Public Health and the city of Seat Pleasant are providing free HIV testing at the university’s Nyumburu Cultural Center in College Park from 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

They also are sponsoring a World AIDS Day event with speakers from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the cultural center. The event will focus on young people in an effort to help prevent new cases by heightening awareness and providing education.
