According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 79 million Americans are currently infected with HPV. About 14 million people become newly infected each year. Every year, about 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and about 4,400 women die from this disease in the U.S. About 1% of sexually active men and women in the U.S. have genital warts at any given time. Although there are new screening and diagnostic tools as well as studies supporting the use of immunizations to reduce HPV related cancers, there is misinformation and uncertainty among providers and patients about HPV immunizations. This continuing education activity will be used to improve health care professional delivery of HPV information and patient understanding of the vaccine.

Please see attached flyer for more details.
