Students

HPV Awareness Day

March 10, 2009

Enjoy a free lunch and learn important facts about HPV.

Hartshorn Health Center sponsors HPV Awareness Day in order to educate students about HPV awareness and the myths about the number one STI on campus and in the country.

Mythbusters on the Plaza
Wednesday, March 11
11 a.m.-2 p.m.

The four most important messages are:

1. Two out of 3 women will have HPV at some point in their lives 2.

2. Just because you've had the vaccine, doesn't mean you can't get HPV. The vaccine only covers four of the 100+ strains of HPV

3. You can get HPV from any genital to genital contact - you don't need to have sex to get it.

4. Men can get and spread HPV, even though they may not show any symptoms and there is no FDA approved test for them.
