HPV Vaccination: A Look at State Policy and a Path Forward

St. Jude HPV Cancer Prevention Program Virtual Seminar


April 27, 2021
11:00 am-12:15 pm CST

The goal of the virtual seminar is to share the results of an in-depth analysis of HPV vaccination-related policies in four states, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee, with low HPV vaccination uptake relative to the United States overall. NP Strategy, a strategic communications consultancy and a wholly owned subsidiary of Nexsen Pruet, LLC, analyzed the state-level policy and regulations enacted about HPV vaccinations in adolescents in these four states over the past decade. The analysis also focused on potential opportunities or challenges to future legislation or actions in these four states but may be relevant more broadly.

The virtual seminar will include an overview of St. Jude policy interests by Rob Clark, St. Jude Chief Governmental Affairs Officer, report findings presented by Seth Palmer, NP Strategy, and a moderated discussion with additional key policy stakeholders, including Dr. Lisa Piercey, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Health; Dr. Sarah Moreland-Russell, Washington University in St. Louis; ShaRhonda Love, Arkansas Minority Health Commission; and Kimberly Hughes, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (Mississippi). 

The virtual seminar will be recorded. All registrants will receive a link to view the recording after the seminar.
