Encouraging conversation and continued testing empowering YOU to be the guardian of your own sexual health.

    I have been in the IT industry for 14 years. 2 years ago I was laid off from a Law Firm when I began consulting. In that time I meet several members of the LGBT community as well as HIV/AIDS advocates from various organizations and learned much about STDs and HIV/AIDS. It wasn't until 3 personal friends contracted the virus that I became heavily active in prevention. CareXO was born.
