About this Event

Event description:

Join us for a free virtual film screening and discussion of Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic. This documentary looks at the lives of five women affected by human papillomavirus (HPV), the widely misunderstood virus that causes several types of cancer, including cervical and mouth/throat cancers. In fact, HPV can cause six different types of cancer and causes over 17,000 cancers in women and over 9,000 cancers in men each year in the U.S. While HPV is so common that most people will have it at some point in their lives, there are ways to prevent it. Thankfully, there are ways to prevent HPV cancers, and you can learn more by joining us for this event.

Following the film screening, participants can choose to attend one of the following breakout session discussions:

You Are the Key to Cancer Prevention: Providing a Strong Recommendation for HPV Vaccination (Facilitator/Speaker: Joshua Kantrowitz, MD)

Recognize different best practices and communication techniques you can use when introducing the HPV vaccine to parents, as well as the roles that each member of your care team can take in increasing HPV vaccination rates.

OR

HPV Vaccination: What Oral Health Professionals Should Know (Facilitator/Speaker: Daniel K. Fram, MD)
