HPV Strategic Planning Workshop

Friday, November 15, 2019 - 8:00am to 12:00pm


Robbins-Woerner Conference Room, Simmons Cancer Institute, 315 W. Carpenter St., Springfield


The HPV Strategic Planning Workshop will be facilitated to gather stakeholder insight to develop an Illinois HPV plan to supplement the Illinois Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan.

The goal for the Illinois HPV Plan is to leverage partners and resources to:

  • Increase awareness of which cancers are related to the human papillomaviruses.
  • Identify barriers to prevention and early detection for HPV-related cancers
  • Identify innovative, evidence-informed approaches that stakeholders can adopt to increase vaccination rates to reduce the incidence and mortality rates of HPV related cancers.
  • Prioritize policies, data systems, and practice changes to address barriers
