I will be sharing my cancer story to support an event being put on by Sarah Sullivan, the Program Manager for the Cancer Prevention in Action project for Oneida, Madison, and Herkimer counties in New York State. The event which is being held at Utica College will show the documentary: “Someone You Love: an HPV Epidemic.” This project will hopefully increase awareness regarding HPV, HPV Oropharyngeal Cancer, and the HPV vaccine.
I will share my story to inspire health care professionals to continue educating patients about the importance of the HPV Vaccine.
I will share my story during this full day conference which is directed towards school nurses, public health nurses, healthcare provider nurses, and other community partners in Chenango County, NY.
