Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

HPV is a common virus that can cause six types of cancer, and the vaccine can prevent up to 90% of those cancers. To help raise awareness of cancer prevention through HPV vaccination, the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is conducting an educational program in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute.

An educational program for parents in Oregon

We are offering our educational program about HPV and the HPV vaccine for Oregon parents who have adolescent children (ages 9-17) or young adults (ages 18-26). Our Community Health Educator team has presented this material to college students, medical clinics and community organizations. Program materials are available in English and Spanish.


Eligible participants will be compensated for completion of the pre and post surveys, and will also receive a gift card for every eligible follow-up survey completed. Must be an Oregon resident to participate or receive a gift card.
