“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” – Colin Powell
The motivation behind the project proposal is all about empowering women to take ownership in their health. Not only in understanding HPV as a disease state but that the vaccine and screening can prevent cervical cancer. Vaccines are important preventative care and pharmacists are critical to the delivery of vaccines within local communities. Brittany believes that her team can expand the public’s view that pharmacists are innovators, educators, and advocates for increasing awareness and access to healthcare.
"I am most excited to see an increase in the number of HPV vaccines given throughout Tennessee. This project not only has a direct impact on the women attending the live event but can extend throughout the state and country through social media. The utilization of technology and social media means that more individuals, regardless of gender, age, and location, can gain information and access to HPV vaccines. Plus, who doesn’t love learning new things from our closest friends?"
