Our Community, Our Health: HPV Vaccine
HealthStreet, a community engagement program at the University of Florida, is hosting its 12th National Our Community, Our Health (OCOH) event to discuss how the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can prevent various types of cancer among people in our community.
The OCOH town hall series is a conversation between researchers and community members across the country. We share ideas about priorities for health research and ways to communicate research findings. We blend ideas for research from multiple stakeholders.
For this engaging event, we will:
- Encourage discussion about HPV
- Address safety and research of the vaccine
- Explain who should receive the vaccine and when
- Describe the types of cancers that can be prevented
