A local church will make free HIV testing available during an afternoon program designed to boost understanding and awareness of the virus that can destroy a person’s immune system, making them vulnerable to deadly infections.

About 80 people came out for a similar event last year, according to Mary Taylor, spokeswoman for St. James AME Church. The church is partnering with the Denton County Health Department and the local chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, at the University of North Texas, and other community groups to host this year’s event from noon to 3 p.m. Sept. 20.
