Shalem Healing, an integrative holistic healthcare practice, will host two COVID-19 testing opportunities. 

Shalem Healing is located at 800 E. Locust St. in Riverwest. Testing is open to anyone with or without symptoms, current patient or not. If a person has insurance, they should bring their insurance card; otherwise, if paying out-of-pocket, the cost is $95 for the COVID test and $51 for the antibodies test.

The first testing event is open to the public on Tuesday, May 5 from 2 to 4 p.m. The tests will be administered outdoors, so drive-up or walk-up to the northeast corner of Locust and Fratney Streets on Fratney Street, next to the Shalem Healing building.

The second testing event is for residents of the Harambee Neighborhood only and will take place on Thursday, May 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Bader Philanthropies parking lot, 3300 N. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.

Tests are for the COVID-19 virus and IgG / IgM antibodies. The COVID test results take 24-48 hours to receive; the antibodies tests are finger pricks and provide immediate results.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
