Inspired by the statistic that one in 17 Wyoming youth between 15 and 25 years old has an STD, the Wyoming Department of Health is reorganizing its KnoWyo program to target a younger audience between the ages of 13 and 25. The federally funded program allows individuals to print a voucher for free STD and HIV tests at local clinics. The campaign emphasizes using the hashtag #make1countare on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
