The Chester City Council recently recognized National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on Feb. 7 at the urging of Shakina McClain-Woodruff, the director of Family Planning Services and Associated Programs for Pearl Hall at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. McClain-Woodruff oversees the Health Resource Center at Chester High School.

Pearl Hall aimed to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and urge African Americans in the community to get educated and get tested for the disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control, African Americans accounted for nearly half (45 percent) of all new HIV/AIDS infections in the United States in 2006. Pearl Hall also offered free rapid HIV testing to members of the community on Feb. 7.
