    October 24, 2018 - October 24, 2018

    The introduction of HPV vaccines in 2006 and the widespread adoption of HPV testing created a need for educating the clinical community about the role of HPV infections in anogenital disease, appropriate clinical usages of HPV testing, and the potential benefits of vaccination against HPV infections.   In response to this need, the ASCCP developed an Educate the Educator program, which was a series of training courses designed specifically to address confusion in the clinical community after the introduction of cotesting, and the first generation of HPV vaccines - with the greatest challenge being in the smaller and mid-sized communities that lack clinicians who have expertise in this area.  

    Topics:

    Using HPV Testing for Cervical Cancer Screening
    Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines
    HPV Vaccines

    All registered attendees will have access to online speaker lecture kits as well as access to a speaker support center for questions and updated information.

    Event Location:

    Emory Conference Center Hotel
    Room: Emory Amphitheater A-E
