Attention clinicians! CDC and partners, including the National AHEC Organization, recommend HPV vaccination of both girls and boys at ages 11 or 12 and suggest that clinicians strongly recommend HPV vaccination for preteens and teens who have not yet been fully vaccinated.

Get the New Year off to a great start by offering an extraordinary training program! We are very pleased to offer our next webinar aimed at health professionals, "The Immunity Community: Evidence-Based Strategies for Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy," at 3 p.m. ET, Thursday, Jan. 26. Todd Faubion, PhD, and Mackenzie Melton, MPH, of the non-profit WithinReach, will share lessons learned in a three-year intervention that engaged parents to advocate in favor of immunizations in their communities and review strategies that have been shown, with statistical significance, to change immunization attitudes and beliefs. There is no continuing education credit associated with this presentation, however, attendees can request a certificate of attendance. Please promote this webinar to health professionals, medical office staff and health professions students in your networks. Those interested professionals may use this link to register: http://nao-ntc.adobeconnect.com/immunitycommunity/event/registration.html.

More than 50 school nurses (LPNs and RNs), along with two health educators and county school administrator received HPV education as part of the CDC HPV Project last week. The Southern Kentucky AHEC (doing the state work in Tennessee) reached out to the Knox County Health Department (a grantee of one of the national project partners: National Association of County & City Health Officials). In turn, the health department connected the AHEC with the University of Tennessee Medical Center's gynecologic oncology department which resulted in the scheduling of a series of live presentations and a "HPV champion" speaker in Dr. Kristopher Kimball. Way to go Southern KY AHEC! Interested in reaching school nurses, too? Check out this middle school nurse toolkit from our partners at the American Cancer Society. http://ow.ly/kTia3085Pud

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2017 Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program. The AHEC Program develops and enhances education and training networks within communities, academic institutions, and community-based organizations. In turn, these networks support BHW's strategic priorities to increase diversity and distribution among health professionals, enhance health care quality, and improve health care delivery to rural and underserved areas and populations.
Entities eligible for the Infrastructure Development (ID) phase include accredited schools of allopathic or osteopathic medicine, incorporated consortia of such schools, or the parent institutions of such schools. With respect to states in which no AHEC Program is in operation, an accredited school of nursing is eligible to apply.
Entities eligible for Point of Service Maintenance and Enhancement (POSME) phase include entities that have previously received AHEC Program funding from HRSA for more than 12 years. http://links.govdelivery.com/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTYxMjMwLjY4MjA2OTkxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE2MTIzMC42ODIwNjk5MSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3ODAzNTAyJmVtYWlsaWQ9cnRyYWNodGVuYmVyZ0BuYXRpb25hbGFoZWMub3JnJnVzZXJpZD1ydHJhY2h0ZW5iZXJnQG5hdGlvbmFsYWhlYy5vcmcmZmw9JmV4dHJhPU11bHRpdmFyaWF0ZUlkPSYmJg==&&&101&&&http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=289066&utm_campaign=FOA%3A+Area+Health+Education+Centers+Program&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
