The OWU Health Center is again offering free STI testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia! Early screening is so important because the majority of people with Gonorrhea and Chlamydia never show symptoms! Gonorrhea and Chlamydia can cause serious health problems if left untreated, but they can easily be treated and cured with antibiotics!

For this testing, you will need to call and book an appointment with a nurse at the Student Health Center at 740-368-3160.
