D.C. Will Quiz Doctors' HIV/AIDS Knowledge to Ensure Better Screening

The District government plans to ask the city's private doctors how much they know about HIV/AIDS as part of an effort to urge them to offer routine screenings for the disease. Jeremy Brown, M.D., associate professor of Emergency Medicine in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, says a number patients come to the emergency room with sprained ankles or cuts, and are found to be infected with HIV after a routine screening.
