The President's Cancer Panel Annual Report 2012-2013 entitled, "Accelerating HPV Vaccine Uptake: Urgency for Action to Prevent Cancer" finds underuse of HPV vaccines is a serious but correctable threat to progress against cancer. In Iowa, an estimated 1 in 4 females and 1 in 10 males age 13-15 have received all three doses of HPV vaccine. Join us to discuss key components of the President's Cancer Panel report, engage with new partners, and learn what role your organization can play in statewide efforts to increase uptake of the HPV vaccine.
