The American Cancer Society’s National HPV campaign, Mission HPV Cancer Free, has a goal to increase the HPV vaccination rate to 80% by 2026. In Oklahoma, only 37.9% of adolescents have completed the HPV vaccine series - meaning, we have some work to do. 

Oklahoma's First Annual HPV Summit will feature a day of expert speakers to educate and inspire all that play an influential role in HPV vaccination. The content for the day will build confidence and normalize HPV vaccination as well as provide information on how to increase HPV vaccination.  We will also introduce ready to use resources that can be used with key audiences including parents/patients/students. 

This event is intended for: Pediatric and Primary Care Physicians, Public Health Nurses, other Healthcare Professionals and School-Based Health Stakeholders. 

Lunch is included in registration.

HPV Vaccination is cancer prevention and together we will attack cancer from every angle.
