  • Program Coordinator



BS – University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Carol Minor is a Program Coordinator for the HPV Cancer Prevention Program at St. Jude, a community outreach program which aims to reduce human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancer deaths locally and nationally by increasing HPV vaccination rates.

“A major part of my work is centered around developing partnerships to help increase the HPV vaccination rates in the communities we serve,” says Minor. “The work is done through encouraging provider recommendations to vaccinate and educating parents around the safety, efficacy and lasting effects of the HPV vaccine.”

“I value the effort by St. Jude to expand into real cancer prevention with the HPV vaccine,” continues Minor. “While the hospital treats children with childhood diseases, St. Jude has the foresight to think about preventing cancer in their future.  That’s a huge offering to all of the communities we serve.”

Prior to joining the St. Jude staff in January 2021, Minor served as a Director in Health Systems for the American Cancer Society, focusing on cancer prevention and early detection for breast, colorectal, prostate, cervical cancer and promotion of the HPV vaccine. She also has extensive knowledge of risk management and health insurance, as she worked with CNA Insurance, State Auto Mutual Insurance, Tennessee Medicaid and Xantus Healthplan. 

Minor holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  She enjoys walking and bicycling for exercise and coloring for relaxation.  As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, she engages in community service to help serve people where they live.  Her parents are glad to have her back home after living in Nashville for many years.
