9. SCREEN - Sponsor a screening for the documentary Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic. Did you find the video especially impactful? Do you think your friends, family, or another organization would benefit from viewing the documentary. There is an option to host a screening. I'd love to coordinate with you to get some experts at a screening to do a Q&A session in correlation with the video.
