What Is the Role of Disease Intervention Specialists in Preventing STDs?

DIS personnel conduct voluntary interviews with patients to obtain the names and contact information of their sexual partner(s) and then use that information to contact a patient’s sexual partner(s) and inform them of their potential exposure to an STD or HIV.

When our clients are vulnerable and coping with the range of emotions that accompany news of their infection, DIS offer confidence, understanding, trust, and assurance. They are the humanity of STD awareness.
