(St. Paul, MN) -- Four Walgreens stores in the Twin Cities will be offering free HIV testing tomorrow through Saturday. The chain is teaming up with the Minnesota Department of Health in an effort to get people to know their HIV status. According to figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in six people who have HIV are unaware. Since the state began tracking AIDS in 1982 and HIV in 1985, a total of ten-thousand-409 cases have been reported in the state, and there are just over 77-hundred in Minnesota living with HIV or AIDS.
