HPV education for middle school kids

The aim of this project is to create and develop educational materials about the HPV virus and its vaccine, for middle school students. In order to create information materials based on the real needs of students, the project will be divided in two phases. The first one will consist of a formative research. Focus groups will be conducted with both middle students and parents, separately. The second phase will consist in the creation and evaluation of the messages based on the formative research from phase one. This project has been supported with a grant from the Rotary Club Seprio (Varese, Italy). Data collection for the formative research will begin in the Fall 2017.
