Cervical Cancer (HPV)

This joint study between the UNC School of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, is concentrated on discovering parents opinions on how they vaccinate their children. The focus of the questions is aimed at the new HPV vaccine and about how parents feel about vaccinating their daughters with this new vaccine. Another important part of the survey is that it spreads knowledge about cervical cancer and human papillomavirus, and how both diseases can affect everyone. Data collection for this survey will be done by telephone survey in the summer of 2007.
