Description

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common virus. Nearly 80 million people—about one in four—are currently infected in the United States. Although HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections and is a linked cause of cervical cancer, the infection is often silent. Patients may never know they have the infection but often have serious consequences. Educating the population about the importance of the HPV vaccination is necessary to bring down the number of infections.

Hear from Dr. Pahud on the benefits of the HPV vaccination for eligible patients and impact it will have on the community.
