How do I know this is not a scam?

DIS reach out to people in several ways, including phone calls, social media, and in-person visits. If a DIS contacts you to offer Partner Services or notify you of a possible STI exposure, you may ask to speak with a supervisor to verify their identity. You may also request that DIS show you their health department badge or business card. Here you can find a list of all DIS in Kansas, including their phone numbers.
