It’s been 10 years since the Food and Drug Administration approved a vaccine against the primary culprit behind cervical cancer — the human papillomavirus, or HPV.
Dr. Amy Person and nurse Heather Hill of the Benton-Franklin Public Health District will provide an update on this “public health success story.”
Their free talk, “Let’s Prevent Cervical Cancer: The Facts about the HPV Vaccine,” is from noon to 1 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, 7350 W. Deschutes Ave., Kennewick.
RSVP by Jan. 9. Lunch will be provided with an RSVP. Call 509-737-3427 to register or visit tccancer.org and click on the calendar of events page to register online.
The cancer center is able to offer programs like this, at no cost, thanks to community support through the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation. Donations to the foundation stay local and provide non-reimbursed cancer programs and services for patients, their families and the community.
