NEW YORK - Feb. 22, 2021 - PRLog -- HPV Alliance, in partnership with Moffitt Cancer Center and AdventHealth, is hosting a Facebook Live event on International HPV Awareness Day, Thursday, March 4, 2021. The virtual summit will feature leading HPV researchers and oncologists, health advocate Actress Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives), and television personality Jamie Otis Hehner (Married at First Sight). Experts and panelists will dispel myths surrounding HPV, supply facts on prevention, give advice on staying healthy with HPV, share compelling stories of HPV and cancer diagnosis, and provide empowering tips for self-advocacy. Viewers will also have an opportunity to submit questions to the panelists.

Founded by Actress Marcia Cross and Executive Director Lillian Kreppel, both HPV-associated cancer survivors, HPV Alliance is dedicated to stopping the spread of HPV and its associated cancers through both public and health provider education.

"HPV and its related cancers desperately need a voice, not a whisper. HPV Alliance and our partners are that voice." -- Lillian Kreppel, Executive Director of HPV Alliance
