American Cancer Society 2018 HPV Forum: Attacking HPV from Every Angle   July 27, 2018 in Houston, Texas

ACS HPV Forum Houston 2018

Mission: HPV Cancer Free
The American Cancer Society (ACS) will be hosting an educational forum to kick-off their Mission: HPV Cancer Free Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to

  1. increase HPV vaccination rates for preteens and
  2. eliminate gender disparities in HPV vaccination and reduce geographic disparities in HPV vaccination rates.
This campaign will also provide a critical strategy to save lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer. ACS is partnering with some of Houston’s most notable HPV vaccination champions to bring you the tools and resources that are needed to educate parents about the HPV vaccine and share best practices on how to increase HPV immunization rates. CEUs available for Someone You Love viewing.

Mission Statement
Our work will increase HPV Vaccination rates for preteens to at least 80% by June 8, 2026, the 20-year anniversary of the FDA’s approval of the first HPV vaccine. By 2026, we will have partnered with ACS volunteers, parents, providers, healthcare organizations, and community leaders to meet this goal.
