I will use this immediately in my work as we are implementing a QI project to assist 15 clinics in improving their HPV vaccination rates.”

5. The ABCs of Meningococcal Disease by Lynn Bozof, President of the National Meningitis Association
“I have to admit I did not really know how deadly this disease could be. I understand it much better and plan to educate our staff on the signs/symptoms and how important this vaccine is. I went to the CDC website and read that 10-15 people out of a hundred will die from this disease. This is a scary statistic to me.”
