Web-based Education on HPV and Cancer

With support from the NNLM Region 7 Grant, Team Maureen will make updates and additions to our web-based educational tool on HPV and Cancer to allow for more effective engagement with patients and the public. Improvements will provide better ways to interact with new knowledge, a ‘find local health care providers’ function for vaccination and screening providers (no matter where you are!) and most importantly, all materials will be translated into Portuguese, Spanish, Vietnamese, Haitian-Creole, Simple Chinese, and Arabic. All of these will help reduce barriers to healthcare and improve knowledge among underserved communities to reduce HPV-related cancer. The web-based tool will be available for free for anyone who would like to use it, but will be piloted in partnership with See, Test, and Treat events hosted by local community organizations. (See, Test & Treat is a national program that delivers free cervical and breast cancer screening to medically underserved women in the United States who face language, cultural, financial, and transportation barriers to health care.)
