"There's nothing we can really do to advertise," says Tim Curges, a public health administrator for the STD-AIDS Program of the Allegheny County Health Department."People know the clinic is here.They just need to take advantage of it."Tim stands and expounds against a sidewalk's railing facing the pharmacy and streamlined traffic.He pauses before he speaks and explains that the best way to let people know that there is help available is simply through word of mouth.He takes his time speaking.He explains things that amount to this: An STD clinic isn't a basketball shoe, an anti-depressant or a voyeurs' VHS tape devoted to skin and exposure thereof.It's help and concern.And it's free.So if one person gets tested and gets help, he or she might be able to make a friend comfortable when they have to face a similar situation."We can't force people to come here," Tim explains."It's more about individuals preparing themselves to face what's real."Interviews are new to him, Tim insists.His job is to talk with families, friends.He tries to assuage tempers, fears.He imagines he's seen everything, but doubts that "everything" will remain as it is.When asked about the kinds of people who make use of the clinic, he shrugs and mutters simply, "We get it all.All kinds."
