Cervical and head and neck cancers caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) are on the rise but most are preventable with HPV immunization. School nurses and other health care professionals who work in schools can make an impact by learning all they can about the diseases caused by HPV, and how to prevent them by ensuring that adolescent are immunized. Using communication skills learned in this activity, participants will be able to effectively communicate the benefits of HPV immunization. We have limited seats, please register today and be sure to show up early prior to the webinar (Wednesday, July 26, 2017 3:00pm-4:00pm ET) to ensure your spot. Presented by Mary Koslap-Petraco, DNP, PNP-BC, CPNP, FAANP, Immunization Action Coalition
