Vanderbilt University Medical Center will host an educational symposium on human papillomavirus (HPV) and associated cancers on Friday, March 1, from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center Preston Research Building, 2220 Pierce Ave, in room 898-J.

The free symposium for health care practitioners is sponsored by VUMC and the HPV-Associated Cancer Consortium Vanderbilt (HPV-ACTIVE), a 2017 Trans-Institutional Programs (TIPs) awardee.

The event is split into two sessions focusing on the screening and elimination of HPV-associated cancers. It is the second in an annual series and has been approved for continuing medical education (CME) credits.

Experts from both within and beyond VUMC will discuss innovative screening approaches for cervical, anal and oropharyngeal cancers, assess the effectiveness of the HPV vaccine in the United States and provide recommendations for managing patients who are hesitant to receive the vaccine.
