What are the STI test options in San Fernando,CA?
As essentially part of Los Angeles, it is no surprise that San Fernando has high STD rates. Health officials are looking to change this, and part of that effort includes a progressive sex education curriculum in California schools, which seems to be helping to reduce the STD rates among youth.
You can often find free STD testing events to achieve this goal, too.
