About the Summit

Overview & Objectives

The NCI Cancer Centers HPV Vaccination Summit at UT Southwestern marks the sixth in a series of national meetings convened by NCI-designated cancer centers to prevent HPV-related cancers by increasing HPV vaccination rates. This year's HPV Vaccination Summit is open to all U.S. cancer centers and their immunization partners, including:

  • Researchers
  • Clinicians
  • Public health organizations
  • Educators
  • Communications specialists
  • Outreach teams
  • Advocacy groups


According to the CDC, incidence rates of HPV-associated cancers have continued to rise, with approximately 39,000 new HPV-associated cancers now diagnosed each year in the United States. The nonavalent HPV vaccine prevents 90% of cervical and HPV-related cancers, yet vaccination completion rates remain just below 50%. We invite you to attend the NCI Cancer Centers HPV Vaccination Summit at UT Southwestern this November to help change the course of cancer in your communities.

We will gather to accomplish the following objectives: 

  • Discuss the latest research advances and current challenges in HPV vaccination. 
  • Share novel community engagement strategies used by cancer centers to promote HPV vaccination.
  • Highlight findings from cancer centers funded by NCI to conduct environmental scans.
  • Promote collaborations among cancer centers and HPV immunization stakeholders.

Key Dates & Times

  • Poster abstract submission deadline: Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. EDT
  • Special block hotel room rates end on Oct. 31, 2019
  • The summit begins on Nov. 14, 2019, at 12:30 p.m.
  • Dinner and reception: Nov. 14, 6:30–9:30 p.m.

Abstract Details

We encourage submission of data-driven abstracts focused on the following priority topic areas:

  • Understanding and addressing parental HPV vaccination hesitancy (e.g., responding to misinformation on social media, countering conspiracy beliefs)
  • Policies/programs supporting HPV vaccination in alternative settings (e.g., pharmacies, dental practices, school-based health clinics)
  • Optimizing HPV vaccination delivery in rural settings
  • Challenges in and strategies to engaging clinical and other stakeholders (e.g., addressing provider/healthcare team hesitancy, motivating operational leaders to prioritize HPV vaccination, implementing system-level interventions)

The planning committee will invite those submitting the highest ranking abstracts to make a brief oral presentation, either during one of the panel sessions or at the poster session.
