Teen Clinic Could Help Reduce Chlamydia Rate In Alexandria

Play associated audio

Alexandria has some of the highest levels of chlamydia in Virginia, according to a recent study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Nurses at the city's teen clinic say it's particularly a problem among young people. The good news is that chlamydia is easily tested and, if it's caught, easily cured. That's one of the reasons why the school system and the city government are working together to move the clinic, which is currently located in a run-down trailer behind a strip mall. Over the summer, they plan to relocate the facility to T.C. Williams High School and rename it the Teen Wellness Center.
