SFAF.org Podcast #49 - Changing CA phlebotomy laws to increase HIV testing

In this episode, Courtney Mulhearn-Pearson, the Foundation's Policy and Legislative Associate, explains about how California's current phlebotomy laws may be hampering efforts to increase HIV testing in the state and what the Foundation is doing to help to change this. In 1999, California required anyone doing finger-prick blood testing to obtain a limited phlebotomy certificate.
