HPV Vaccine Summits - A Success!

Two HPV Summits were held in May-one in Wausau on May 11th and the other in Milwaukee on May 12th. The Summits were presented by the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (WIAAP), Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WI DHS) Immunization Program, Scenic Rivers Area health Education Center (SR AHEC) and the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (WI CCC Program). Over 85 people attended the Wausau Summit and nearly 125 attended the event in Milwaukee.


Activating HPV vaccine champions across 

Wisconsin is critical to increasing HPV immunization rates and ensuring that all Wisconsin residents have an equal opportunity to prevent HPV-related cancers. The Summits included education on the link between HPV and various cancers, moving survivor testimonials and strategies for improving immunization rates. These efforts align closely with the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan, Priority 4 - Increasing HPV vaccine completion. We offer sincere thanks to the dedicated planning team, sponsors, speakers, survivors and Summit attendees.


A variety of resources were shared with Summit attendees, to access them click here. To learn more about WI CCC Program's work on HPV vaccines, visit our website.

FDA Extends Authority to All Tobacco Products
Since June of 2009, the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) has regulated products including cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco, under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009. However, tobacco use remains the largest preventable cause of disease and death in the United States. With that in mind, and with intentions to further improve public health, the FDA extended tobacco regulations by subjecting tobacco products to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. With the new rule, the CTP will have the authority to regulate e-cigarettes, dissolvable products, pipe tobacco, hookah tobacco including vape products, cigars, and more.

The provisions to the 2009 rule will require manufactures to submit a full report of ingredients, any harmful and potentially harmful constituents, a product for full FDA review, and complete elimination of modified risk tobacco products-which include those labeled, 'light,' 'low,' or 'mild.'

Changes also include attempts to better restrict youth access to tobacco products. Prior to this rule, no federal law prohibited retailers selling e-cigarettes, hookah tobacco, or cigars to individuals under the age of 18. The new rule will require retailers to check a photo ID to verify the consumer is over the age of 18. In addition, it prohibits the sale of tobacco through any vending machine system.

The rule will go into effect August 8, 2016. You can learn more by visiting the FDA's website
ICYMI: In Case You Missed It
The CDC's 2015 National Health Interview Survey, reported that the percentage of adults 18 years and older who are cigarette smokers had declined to 15.1% in 2015--that from 16.8% in 2014. The report, however, did not give further reasoning for the trend or discuss whether it could be due to a transition to e-cigarette devices from the traditional cigarette. Read more>>
