[MMA News Now, Oct. 31, 2013]
The Minnesota Cancer Alliance (MCA) is seeking a physician “champion” to help develop a human papillomavirus (HPV) communication strategy with a focus on “vaccines as cancer prevention.”
Research indicates that the most effective way to increase vaccination numbers is through a physician recommendation. As a result the MCA, which MMA is a member of, would like to work with a physician “champion” to get its message out to physicians and families.

, program coordinator at the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota.
