About the campaign


The American Cancer Society and the New York State HPV Coalition have an ongoing statewide campaign to increase HPV vaccine uptake and achieve completion rates among adolescents of 80 percent by the end of 2023. This campaign consists of equipping hospital systems, federally qualified health centers, private providers, nurses and more with tools and resources to help increase HPV vaccination. The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for healthcare providers, patients, and policymakers. Potential declines in adolescent vaccinations place communities at greater risk for outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.

About the ECHO series


The NYS HPV ECHO Series is focused on helping clinic teams, which may include private providers, nurses, medical assistants and more, learn about best practices, team engagement, and evidence-based strategies for recommending and consistently delivering the HPV vaccine and other vaccines amidst COVID-19.


The ECHO is designed to learn through peer-to-peer clinical case studies, discussion, and didactics taught by leaders in HPV vaccination. It is a dynamic and interactive way to improve healthcare quality.


To register and receive 4 free CME/CEs via the ECHO Series, participants will commit to:


• Participate in all 4 one-hour ECHO sessions
