Health professionals want to make sure you're spreading love and not something contagious this Valentine's Day.

Hinds Behavioral Health Services is hosting "If You Love Me, You Will Get Tested," on Friday until 2 p.m.

During the program anyone is welcome to sign-up for free HIV testing.

Health experts are also on hand to educate you about protecting yourself from HIV and to encourage you to get tested.

"We just want to make people aware of HIV. They don't have to be afraid to get tested. We're asking people in the community to come out to be tested," says Chan Willis, one of the program organizers. 

Other health screenings are also being offered for free. Hinds Behavioral Health Services is located at 3450 Highway 80 West in Jackson.
