Making Effective HPV Vaccine Recommendations

Save the Date: Making Effective HPV Vaccine Recommendations

On Wednesday, April 4 at 6 p.m., join us for an event featuring Noel Brewer, Ph.D., a prominent researcher in HPV vaccination and cancer prevention, and Chair of the ACS HPV Vaccination Roundtable. Dr. Brewer will provide an interactive training allowing you the opportunity to learn the latest on HPV vaccine research and guidelines. Included will be a brief, evidence-based communication strategy to increase vaccine uptake by your adolescent patients. You will also hear stories of Iowans who have been through treatment for HPV associated cancers, and others who want to help us protect adolescents from the six HPV associated cancers. Registration and networking begin at 5:30 p.m. Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be provided.

The following morning on Thursday, April 5 at 7 a.m., Dr. Brewer will present at grand rounds where the conversation will continue with patient case scenarios. You can attend on-site at Des Moines University or online. Registration is required if you’re attending online.

Both activities will be held at Des Moines University. For more information or to register, please visit https://cme.dmu.edu/HPV2018, email cme@dmu.edu, or call 515-271-1596.
