HPV: What are gay men’s vulnerabilities? – NEW Tele-Learning Opportunity

In 2008 as part of ManCount, a sub-sample of participants provided self-collected rectal swabs to test for HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) and anal cancer. A total of 239 swabs were tested.

The Pacific AIDS Network is pleased to be working in partnership with the ManCount collaborative team to present this second tele-learning opportunity.

Please join Dr. Mark Gilbert (BC CDC) and members of the study team on March 17 from 10 to 11:30am Pacific Time for a BC tele-learning presentation and discussion, entitled,

"HPV infection in gay men and vaccine acceptance: Findings from the Vancouver ManCount Survey"

Registration is necessary and space is limited.
