MEMPHIS, TN — Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region is proud to participate in a nationwide campaign with MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation to officially unveil “GYT: Get Yourself Tested,” a campaign to increase testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
You may see the initials GYT all over the web and the TV this month. GYT plays off mobile and web slang and is an easy way for young people to talk about sexual health and getting tested for STDs. GYT kicks off a national promotional campaign throughout April in recognition of National STD Awareness Month. It will include a mix of on-air and online promotions on MTV, encouraging young people to get tested.
Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region (PPGMR), founded in 1938, is an affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. PPGMR’s mission is to ensure broad public access to reproductive and related health care through clinic services, education, advocacy and community partnerships in serving 42 counties in West Tennessee, North Mississippi and East Arkansas.
