Upcoming Webinars: 

You Are The Key to HPV Cancer Prevention

Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 2:00 pm MST

(45 minutes)

An estimated 79 million Americans are currently infected with at least one type of Human papillomavirus (HPV) – but most people will never know they have been infected. However, more than 30,000 new cases of cancer each year are caused by HPV, many of which are preventable with the HPV vaccine. More than 50 percent of Montana’s children have not received the complete HPV vaccination series, despite new guidelines that show only two doses are now required in many cases and the vaccine has been deemed safe and effective.

This webinar will cover the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention, help health care providers and other health advocates develop self-efficacy in delivering effective HPV vaccination recommendations, learn how to respond to parental concerns about HPV vaccination and review available promotional materials and resources to assist in increasing HPV vaccination.
