HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some students at Southern Miss are encouraging their fellow students to get tested for HIV and AIDS. The members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority teamed up with USM Health Services to offer free HIV and AIDS testing at the Student Union Tuesday.

It's part of the sorority's Got Tested! program.

The Alpha Kappa Alpha members also provided some free hand-outs with information about HIV and AIDS.

"HIV and AIDS testing is really something that's imperative, especially for young adults, ages 18 through 24, so we wanted to target the college campus and create a way for them to get testing for free," said Aisha Carson, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.  

This is the fifth year the sorority co-host the event.
