HPV in the blogosphere
This blog, “HPV vaccines: Additional call-to-action by healthcare providers needed,” calls for the vaccine to be made as the required package of teen immunizations. The writer, Brandon Brown, is an assistant professor at the UC Riverside School of Medicine Center for Healthy Communities, and the blog appears on the Immunize Nevada website.
Let’s bust some myths
Our partners at the American
Cancer Society shared with us their HPV
Vaccine Myths document that dispels 11 common myths related to the HPV vaccine. Not only does the ACS relay
facts to debunk the myth but provides additional talking points about each.

Psychological Health Webinar
The Impact of Sexual Assault and Treatment Options
August 27, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)
According to a Department of Health and Human Services, Children’s Bureau fiscal year 2012 report, U.S. state and local child protective services received an estimated 3.4 million referrals of children being abused or neglected. Of these child victims, 9 percent were victims of sexual abuse. The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010 Summary Report identified that one in two women (44.6 percent) and one in five men (22.2 percent) experienced sexual violence other than rape in their lifetime. Victims of sexual assault often experience a range of psychological and emotional disorders including rape trauma syndrome, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. The psychological and emotional trauma these victims experience can also manifest itself in physical reactions such as stomach aches, headaches, and back problems. Well researched trauma-informed treatment approaches and applicable prevention methods have proven to show positive outcomes for reducing the impact of the abuse.
Webinar participants will:
Illustrate the acute and long-term consequences of sexual abuse and assault relevant to providers
Describe treatment considerations for both the child and adult victim
Identify prevention initiatives
