SGO is committed to partnering with organizations that share our vision to eradicate gynecologic cancers.
Join the HPV Vaccine Campaign
Working together to prevent cervical cancer, SGO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourage SGO members to connect with pediatricians and others who are in a position to provide the vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) to boys and girls.
How you can help
Because you have personal experience with seeing the effects of non-vaccination for HPV, we are asking you to:
- Share your experiences with your colleagues in pediatrics and family medicine about how you provide care to patients who have HPV-related cancers and disease.
- Help make the consequences of missed vaccination opportunities for preteens and adolescents real.
Join the CDC Speakers Bureau
CDC extends an invitation to SGO members to speak with pediatricians and family practitioners to help stress the urgency of HPV vaccination at ages 11-12 years. There is no need for members to be vaccine experts; CDC will provide you with a brief presentation that includes CDC statistics and information regarding the HPV vaccine and tips for helping pediatricians and family practitioners to strengthen their recommendation of the vaccine.
CDC will help to coordinate speaking arrangements, provide supplementary materials, and may reimburse for some local travel expenses. If you are interested, please contact Christina Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
