Be an Employer Superhero – Prevent HPV and Save Lives

Do you know all the facts about HPV?  Are you doing what you can to engage and educate employees?

HPV - human papillomavirus - is the most common sexually transmitted disease.  Nearly one-quarter of Americans are infected with HPV, and 14 million are newly infected each year.

The HPV virus can lead to multiple forms of cancer – but these cancers are preventable!  You can help save lives by ensuring that eligible adults 26-45 and children ages 11-12 get the HPV vaccine.

Join Dr. Amanda Dempsey, Tenured Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado Denver and Michelle Martin, VP Employee Engagement, CBS Corp, to learn the facts and how you can make a difference.

The New Sandwich Generation

Today, your Gen X and Millennial employees increasingly find themselves shouldering expenses for small children and/or adult children — including college education and costs of those returning home to live— while also caring for aging or ill parents.  And for middle-aged adults, this is all happening as they plan for retirement.  “Sandwichers” lack the time and energy to fulfill these responsibilities successfully, and their physical and mental health frequently suffers.

Supporting Children’s Mental Health

Nearly 20% of children have a mental health or developmental disability and chances are their parents are your employees. Despite your best efforts, parents may not be able to find or afford a mental health specialist for their kids. Left untreated or undertreated, children suffer the effects of these conditions and parents are stressed, leading to absenteeism and reduced productivity.
