The Memphis and Shelby County HPV Cancer Prevention Roundtable is a collaboration of healthcare, community, and advocacy partners with a mission to measurably increase HPV vaccination coverage in Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee. The Roundtable grew out of concern for increased diagnoses of preventable cervical cancers by oncologist Dr. Michael Ulm at West Cancer Center. After a meeting of local HPV partners to address these concerns, the formal Roundtable was established in 2021.
Our guiding principles are:
Membership in the Roundtable is extended to individuals and organizations interested in supporting our mission and guiding principles. The Executive Committee is the Roundtable’s governing body that supports the mission, determines the scope of activities, and helps in membership growth. The Planning Committee works on establishing programmatic activities, including the annual Roundtable.
Primary Care Pediatrics Clinic is a community champion in the many ways they promote HPV vaccination in Memphis, Shelby County, and beyond. They are committed to cancer prevention and saving lives through HPV vaccination.
