News at Brookhaven College

Release Date July 13

If you’re into free concert tickets, be sure you’re at Brookhaven College July 24.

The fifth annual Hip Hop for HIV “test for tickets” program is back, and the college and KBFB 97.9 The Beat have once again partnered to offer free HIV screenings and onsite medical counseling to the public.

Testing will be from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Health Center, Student Services Center, Room S072. All who get tested will receive one free ticket to the Hip Hop for HIV concert, set for Aug. 12 from 3-6 p.m. at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

The Beat’s street team will be at the college during testing, and registration for the fall semester will be in full swing. Applications for admission to the college are available online and in the Student Services Center.

Hip Hop for HIV encourages the Dallas community to get tested at any of the event’s testing sites and to know their HIV status. Testing and tickets are free, but the only way to get a ticket is to get tested.

Brookhaven College is located at 3939 Valley View Lane in Farmers Branch. For more information about the Brookhaven College testing location, contact Jessica Rawlins, Brookhaven College marketing and advertising coordinator, at 972-860-4374.
