Our Story

Our Story

Founded in 2017, the Rod Bragg Music City PrEP Clinic is a sexual health and wellness clinic. Our mission is to get to zero new HIV transmissions in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. We work toward this by providing free PrEP and PEP prescriptions regardless of income or insurance status. Our services include discreet, no-cost lab testing for HIV and bacterial STDs, plus hepatitis A, B, and C testing.

If you live in Tennessee but aren’t close to Nashville, we can still serve you through telemedicine without your needing to come to our clinic in-person at any point. Ask a Music City PrEP representative for details.
