CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Clear Creek County Public Health is offering free HIV, STI, and Hepatitis C testing at the Health and Wellness Center. It's a collaboration with the Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP).

"Public Health is taking a collaborative approach, utilizing Binx Health and BCAP to bring patient access to testing both on-site and at home. We put convenience and quality at the heart of your care program," said Public Health Nurse Andrea Uliano.
