Get tested in April

Sarasota, Florida -- April is National Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) awareness month, the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County urges residents of all ages to reduce their risk for these diseases by getting tested. 

Testing for STDs is available by appointment at Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County with locations at:

  • 2200 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota
  • North Port Health Center, 6950 Outreach Way, North Port

"These efforts to make STD testing easier are in response to the silent epidemic of gonorrhea, chlamydia and other STDs, especially among our youth," said Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County Medical Executive Director William Heymann, M.D.

Sarasota County joins organizations across the nation, including the CDC, the Florida Department of Health and its county health departments, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its network of health centers, the Kaiser Family Foundation, MTV and others in the National STD Awareness month award-winning campaign, "Get Yourself Tested or GYT."
