The Southwest region of the Pennsylvania AHEC organization is coordinating a grant from the National AHEC Organization (NAO) and the CDC to increase rates of HPV vaccination in the U.S. We are building partnerships with other organizations working in this arena.

 

As part of this grant, we are able to offer free HPV materials for primary care offices as well as a "You Are the Key" presentation with Continuing Medical Education credits. Please contact us if you would like us to bring the presentation to you. Our number is (412) 408-3485 or email Lynne Williams at lwilliams@southwestahec.org.
