Research description

The purpose of my project is to conduct an in-depth environmental scan and social media based campaigns related to HPV vaccination in New Hampshire and Vermont. We aim to 1) Describe the barriers, facilitators, current activities, and intervention opportunities within our bi-state catchment area, 2) Identify rural practices and perceptions with clinicians and residents concerning the HPV vaccine through in-person and social media-based focus groups, and 3) Develop and disseminate social media campaigns for HPV messages to change rural parent attitudes and behavioral outcomes.
