The MISTER Center is closing at noon on Tuesday, September 19, at the current location.

The MISTER Center will reopen on Wednesday, September 27, at the new location:

523 Church Street, Decatur, GA, 30030

The new location is right off the Decatur Square, and just two blocks from the Decatur MARTA Station.

We have enjoyed our time in Midtown, but with the costs of space in the area have had to find an alternative location where we can still provide all the services we offer. We will continue to offer free HIV testing, as well as STI screenings and treatment, risk counseling services, and our PrEP Clinic. We hope to see you at our new location soon!

Here is a map to our new location!

Welcome to the MISTER Center!

MISTER:  Men's Information Services:  Testing*Empowerment*Resources

is one of several programs offered at Positive Impact Health Centers. While the majority of services are focused on the needs of gay and bisexual men due to the nature of funding that supports MISTER and the mission of the MISTER program, women and straight men may also access many of the services offered at MISTER, including access to no-cost HIV testing, fee-for-service STI screenings and treatment, information on local resources, and linkage to HIV medical care for HIV-positive persons.

A variety of FREE programs and services are offered. Check out the links on this page for more information about HIV testing, STI screening, CLEAR counseling, RAPP and other MISTER services..

The MISTER Center is one of the most popular spots for getting a no-cost rapid HIV test in metro Atlanta, conducting over 6500 HIV tests annually! Have you had your test lately? If you are sexually active the CDC recommends testing every 6 to 12 months; and if you are a gay or bisexual man sexually active with more than one sex partner testing every 3 months is recommended.

Take control of your life -- take the test!
