According to the CDC, over 30,000 people in the US are affected by HPV associated cancers each year. While the HPV vaccine provides safe, effective and lasting protection against HPV infections that most commonly cause cancer, vaccination rates for children in MI are slow to climb. What can we do in our practice?

This one-hour webinar will give you a statewide perspective, show the consequences of HPV infection and the need for prevention and give you practical, easy to use tools for your interactions with patients and parents.
