    PI: Vanessa K Dalton, MD, MPH , Ruth C. Carlos, MD

    MeFirst aims to develop and refine a tailored risk communication intervention to improve HPV vaccination uptake in young adult women ages 18-26 when administered during a teachable moment. The teachable moment is a spontaneously occurring health event that serves as a natural educational gateway. The potential effects of this intervention on HPV vaccine utilization in a hard-to-reach age group enhances system-based interventions that can be more broadly applied or generalized to other health interventions targeted to young adults or other health settings.
