CDC and the American Cancer Society (ACS) HPV Roundtable have established a team of highly regarded and experienced gynecologists, oncologists, pediatricians, and cancer survivors who are ready to talk to their peers about the importance of HPV vaccination. Through speaker’s bureaus, experts and peers can connect personally with pediatricians and other immunization providers to stress the urgency of vaccinating preteens before they are exposed to HPV. Below are links to groups that you can contact to request speakers. A slide deck can also be provided to help give background and further information on vaccination.
HPV-related cancer survivors have a unique voice, and inviting a survivor to tell his or her story at a meeting, grand rounds, conference, or other event can be a powerful addition to your program or presentation. Watch survivor videos and find out what speakers are in your areaExternal.
