Transcript of HPV Awareness 2013

First, HPV is... Budget HPV Awareness 2013 Welcome What is HPV? Human papillomavirus, otherwise known as HPV, is a common virus that can cause warts. There are over 100 different variations of the virus but only 30 can lead to cancer. HPV is also the most commonly spread sexually transmitted infection. It can be classified as high-risk or low-risk. Low-risk HPV causes genital warts while high-risk HPV causes cancer. HPV is not the same as herpes. Knowing information like this can be the difference between life and death. So according to our estimations, our planned activities will only use $30,160 or 11.06% of the allowed budget. - Social-Networking

This is a question teens should ask themselves no matter what STD they could be facing. Our slogan is meant to get teens thinking about how dangerous unprotected sex can really be. No sexual intercourse is worth the trauma one would have to go through if they contracted human papillomavirus (HPV) or any other sexually transmitted disease for that matter. This campaign slogan will not only grab students' attention, but it will also get them thinking about matters that could have a detrimental effect on their lives. HPV is a virus that can develop into genital warts and later progress into cancer. This is why it is important teens stay informed of the risks of being sexually active. Although our slogan implies sexual intercourse, HPV can also be attained from skin-to-skin contact. This is why teens should not just practice safe sex but be safe in general. + Trivia continues

3. Don't ruin your life. 1) DIAGNOSTIC Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States. At least 50% of sexually active people will have genital HPV at some time in their lives. Therefore, the purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness and to prevent more people from contracting this before its turns into something even more horrific. It would also give a better understanding to those who aren't aware of this or maybe never even heard of it. It would give great ideas in how to prevent this and also teach you how to help others. They would also be informed while still having fun and keeping a sense of humor in order to make it much easier to comprehend. Lastly, it would help many and they won't have to worry about asking themselves, “Was it worth the ride?” Why Campaign? We want YOU, the students of Forest Park High School, to listen up! This message is for you and anyone else who cares to listen. This issue affects you and your peers the most. Are You Listening? + Trivia every morning

END Reflection: We were assigned the task of creating a health campaign in which we would spread the word on Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Our group was able to formulate a successful campaign on our disease by planning a fair and pep rally, creating a trivia game, and developing a budget for our campaign. We used Facebook pages and blogs to reach our peers a lot easier and quicker because that is where they send most of their free time on a day to day basis. Through this project, we learned about several aspects of collaboration that need to be in place in order for our group to smoothly and successfully reach our goal. One of these aspects is good lines of communication. An open line of communication also means everyone should feel comfortable sharing ideas and receiving constructive feedback. Everyone needs to know what the goal is and have decided on how the goal will be accomplished. Our main conflict may have been finding time in our hectic schedules to actually collaborate and share our ideas. We eventually ended up resolving this issue through efficient use of class time and communication through Facebook and other technologies. Moreover, we often divided the workload among our members to move closer to the final goal. We also gained knowledge of the many ways from which HPV can be contracted and the places it can be contracted on, including the throat, anus, and genital area. We also learned that HPV is curable and if teens stay aware of what’s happening with their bodies, they can treat the virus before it's too late. The most important thing we learned was that Human Papillomavirus is not worth the ride. T-Shirts! Is it worth the ride? Three key messages: You will receive these messages through...
