Check out this interesting study conducted through The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia that examined electronic health records of more than 100,000 adolescents. While missed opportunities for HPV vaccination were high among both male and female clinicians, the study showed a correlation between the clinician's gender and completion of the HPV vaccination series. Read the summary here.

In preparation for the release of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) from HHS/HRSA/Bureau of Health Workforce, anticipated in early January 2017, and in response to requests at the recent NAO Conference, a working group is developing a series of webinars that will address the three focus areas: distribution, diversity and practice transformation. The first webinar will be held on Monday, August 8, 2016 at 2pm EST. It will be a review of the conversations between Dr. Padilla and NAO leadership, NAO's response to that conversation, HRSA's response, and Dr. Padilla's presentation on Thursday, June 30th during the NAO Conference. This will be a review for those who attended the conference, but we know many directors would like to he http://ow.ly/kBQG302SO2D ar this information again, and many were unable to attend the conference. Thank you again to Sandra Pope (WV AHEC), chair of the Program Director's Constituency Group, Paula Overfelt (NW MO AHEC), chair of the Center Director's Constituency Group, and Gretchen Forsell for leading the work.
