According to the CDC, HPV infections are responsible for approximately 31,000+ new cancer diagnoses each year in the United States. Oropharyngeal cancer caused by HPV has surpassed cervical cancer rates. Despite these alarming statistics, HPV vaccination rates remain low. In Arkansas, 47% of girls and 25% of boys are up-to-date on the HPV vaccine series.
This meeting will make the connection between HPV and cancer, give providers tools to talk to patients about the benefits of the HPV vaccine, and share best practices about ways to increase HPV immunization rates.
