Do you know all the facts about HPV? Are you doing what you can to engage and educate employees?
HPV - human papillomavirus - is the most common sexually transmitted disease. Nearly one-quarter of Americans are infected with HPV, and 14 million are newly infected each year.
The HPV virus can lead to multiple forms of cancer – but these cancers are preventable! You can help save lives by ensuring that eligible adults 26-45 and children ages 11-12 get the HPV vaccine.
Join Dr. Amanda Dempsey, Tenured Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado Denver and Michelle Martin, VP Employee Engagement, CBS Corp., to learn the facts and how you can make a difference.
Dr. Dempsey, an expert on HPV cancer prevention, will cover:
· Types of cancers caused by HPV in men and women
· Vaccination guidelines for adults and teens
· Wellness screenings (pap smears)
· Risk factors - signs and symptoms
· Costs associated with HPV
· What employers can do
Michelle Martin will discuss what CBS is doing to promote HPV education and cancer prevention, including making vaccines and screenings readily accessible to employees and dependents.
She’ll also talk about the “Power to Save a Life Campaign," including communications, benefits design, partnering with your health plan, and resources to educate and motivate employees and family members to get vaccinated!
