Healthy Moms/Healthy Daughters


Healthy Moms Healthy Daughters investigates the efficacy of an individually tailored web-based intervention to improve human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination rates among adolescent daughters of African American women. This study has potential high impact in reducing racial disparities in cervical cancer incidence and mortality. It addresses a significant public health issue by improving HPV vaccination in an at-risk population with a disproportionate incidence of (HPV) caused cervical cancer.


Develop and test a tailored website to educate participants about HPV vaccination, and ultimately increase HPV vaccination initiation rates
