At Adam4Adam, we are committed to your health. We want you to have fun and we want you to stay healthy. That’s why we partner with Health Specialists, who can help link you to information and services. These Health Specialists are easy to recognize as their profile is slightly different from regular users with a profile photo mentioning « Health Specialist » with a red cross icon overlay.
On Adam4Adam, we have two kinds of specialists. The first are outreach workers, who can provide you with information about STDs, HIV, drug use prevention, drug addiction and link you to services and resources in your area. Just chat with them if you have questions, it’s free.
The second kind are called “Disease Intervention Specialists,” or DIS. They’re highly trained, and for decades have played an essential role in stopping the spread of STDs and HIV by helping people get tested and treated. They’re employed by either a health department or a community-based organization. If you are HIV positive or have a specific STD, the DIS can help you to tell your partners anonymously that they have been in contact with STDs or HIV and will help them to go get tested. Feel free to reach out to them, it’s a free service. You can also visit gettested.cdc.gov
