Tinder Adds STI Testing Locator

Following an awareness campaign by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the dating app Tinder, added a sexually transmitted illness testing locator to its website on Jan. 21, according to Business Wire. The testing locator, provided by Healthvana — a website that locates nearby STI testing centers and allows users to schedule appointments and check their results online — is linked at the bottom of Tinder’s new section on sexual health, according to Time Magazine. The addition of the health safety section is especially significant, because Cornell’s sexual health education is lacking. according to Matthew Indimine ’18, co-chair of the Student Assembly Health and Wellness committee.
