Webinar looks at HPV link to cancer

March 28, 2016 ADA members can earn one hour of CE at no cost by attending a live webinar May 5.

The course, “HPV Infection, Risk Factors and HPV-Related Oropharyngeal Cancer,” will review what is known about oral HPV infection and trends in HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer.

Topics covered include common questions and answers about HPV transmission and HPV-related orpharyngeal cancer; risk factors for oral HPV infection, including the role of oral sex; and new data that helps explain why HPV infections and related cancers are more common in man than in women.

Speakers will include Gypsyamber D’Souza, Ph.D., a cancer epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Dr. Mark Lingen, a professor of pathology at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, whose research dealing with tumor angiogenesis and oral cancer has resulted in more than 100 publications. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, in collaboration with the ADA Science Institute, developed the course.
