HPV Initiative

Even though Florida has one of the highest rates of cervical cancer in the country, teenage girls in the state also have the lowest rate of HPV vaccinations. That’s despite the fact the shots would prevent the disease and a number of other ones. Led by clinicians and researchers at USF and Moffitt Cancer Center, a community coalition is going to work on improving the vaccination rate. We’ll have the story on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
