MPH, first year UMHS-SK medical student, has published her research findings along with co-author Raymond Hill
DrPH MPA."The objective of this study was to determine the cost-efficiency of vaccinating against Human Papillomavirus (HPV) in Medicaid enrolled females of the Appalachian region of Kentucky (n=49,411 females) aged 12 to 25 years, versus paying for the treament of cervical cancer cases (n=643 cases) within this population later in life."
The study demonstrated that such a prevention plan is cost-efficient and that over time, as the vaccinated population ages, an actual cost saving will be recognized.
