PrEP

 

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis.

It’s a once-daily pill to prevent HIV negative individuals from contracting HIV. Currently, Baldwin is unable to prescribe PrEP, but they refer all their patients to Hudson River Healthcare. You can read more about PrEP on their website.¬†Once you get a prescription off campus, you can go to Baldwin for the subsequent STI testing and blood-work required every few months when you’re on PReP.

Candice Melvin is the PrEP educator at HRH and her info is provided below:
