Our partners at the American Cancer Society shared with us their HPV Vaccine Myths document that dispels 11 common myths related to the HPV vaccine. Not only does the ACS relay facts to debunk the myth but provides additional talking points about each. http://ow.ly/R0GMS

The NAO Executive Committee met in July to discuss whether to hold a Fall 2015 (FY2016) meeting, and a recommendation was made by the Executive Committee and then approved by the NAO Board at the July 9th board meeting to not hold a Fall conference this coming year for two important reason. One; so as to maximize attendance at the Washington, DC 2016 conference next June and two, we want to be sensitive to holding two conferences in the DC area in one programmatic year, which may be cost prohibitive for many AHECs. We're working to develop a series of webinars in place of the fall conference due in part to possible HRSA AHEC restructuring, for which there are no concrete plans as far as I know. More details will be released once developed. Thank you for your understanding and please do let me know what questions and thoughts you may have.​

This blog, “HPV vaccines: Additional call-to-action by healthcare providers needed,” calls for the vaccine to be made as the required package of teen immunizations. The writer, Brandon Brown, is an assistant professor at the UC Riverside School of Medicine Center for Healthy Communities, and the blog appears on the Immunize Nevada website. http://ow.ly/R0Gqo

We have a couple of great stories of successful visits with AHEC Offices and their local legislative leaders. From Indiana AHEC Network: The Indiana AHEC team met with staff from Representative Todd Young’s office (Republican, Indiana’s 9th District) while in Washington, D.C. in December, 2015 and had the opportunity to share the AHEC mission with Representative Young and take a photo. Representative Young’s staff reflected the office’s support for programs that are fiscally prudent and effective, like the AHEC program in Indiana.
