Experts encourage including HPV vaccine in back-to-school preparation for kids

YourUpdateTV

Every year, nearly than 40,000 men and women are diagnosed with a cancer caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and about 14 million people, including teens, become infected with HPV each year. Recently, Heather Brandt, PhD, the Director of the HPV Cancer Prevention Program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, conducted a satellite media tour to increase awareness and education about the importance of HPV vaccination in preventing HPV-related cancers. Dr. Brandt is urging parents and caregivers to include HPV vaccination in their child’s back-to-school immunizations. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/36xZsO3L3U4 There are several good reasons to immunize children against HPV as early as possible. HPV vaccination is recommended for males and females ages 9-26. HPV vaccination is encouraged to be completed by the 13th birthday, well before the potential for exposure to HPV, which is why Dr. Brandt is encouraging including HPV vaccination as part of a child’s back-to-school preparation. HPV can cause six different types of cancers: cervical, vaginal, vulvar, oral, anal and penile. One of the biggest misconceptions is that HPV only affects women, which is false. Men can also be diagnosed with HPV and carry the virus, which is why HPV vaccination is encouraged for both females and males. It is important that parents know which vaccines are recommended for their children and why. This allows for parents to have a thorough discussion with their child's health care provider and can avoid surprises and last-minute decision-making on vaccines.

Brandt, PhD, is the Director of the HPV Cancer Prevention Program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Dr. Brandt, a social and behavioral scientist, focuses on working with stakeholders to prevent and control cancer by using evidence-based interventions through innovative, partnered approaches. About the HPV Cancer Prevention Program Launched in 2021, the HPV Cancer Prevention Program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has set out to increase awareness and education about the importance of HPV vaccination in preventing HPV-related cancers. As the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center dedicated solely to children, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has an important role and responsibility in increasing HPV vaccination rates locally, regionally, and nationally.

From Renters to Host: Renter Reveal Secrets to Earning Extra Income with Airbnb-Friendly Apartments!

YourUpdateTV

As part of Airbnb’s ongoing efforts to make hosting more accessible to more people, they launched Airbnb-friendly apartments – an easier way for renters to find a place to live where they can host on Airbnb part-time. Recently, Airbnb-Friendly Apartment Host, Jeff Grant, conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the Airbnb‑friendly apartments program and how renters across the US are turning their apartments into profitable Airbnb listings. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/hpSmHUkDqIM Renters interested in hosting a spare room, or their entire apartment when they’re out of town, can browse more than ​ 250 ​ Airbnb-friendly apartment buildings, subject to availability, ​ across ​​ ​ 37 markets across the US ​. ​​ ​ Airbnb-friendly apartments are part of Airbnb’s broader efforts to help more people tap into the economic benefits of hosting at a time when many are trying to keep up with the rising cost of living. Over a three-month period, renters who hosted in Airbnb-friendly apartment buildings included in the marketplace hosted on average nine nights per month and earned on average $900 per month 1. Prospective renters in the US can visit airbnb.com/airbnb-friendly to discover Airbnb-friendly apartments in their area or another city. This new program provides prospective renters who wish to host part-time with information and tools, including: Browse Airbnb-friendly apartments – Prospective renters can explore a variety of Airbnb-friendly buildings at different price points and locations. They can browse available apartments, view floor plans, and what each building offers. Earnings calculator – Prospective renters can use an interactive, custom-built calculator to get an estimate of how much money they could earn by hosting part-time. Calculator users can select various options such as apartment size, or how many nights renters want to host, to receive an estimate of potential earnings per month. Connect with building management – Prospective renters can view additional information on individual buildings, including interior and exterior photos and information about what’s nearby. Building management also can answer specific questions about a building, schedule in-person tours and start the leasing process. Access to Airbnb Setup – Airbnb Setup, a simple way for new Hosts to put their place on Airbnb — from their first question to their first guest. Airbnb Setup will be available to new renters in Airbnb-friendly apartments as they get started hosting– it offers free, one-to-one guidance from a Superhost along with the option to host an experienced guest for your first stay. Helping renters with rising costs of living According to a recent poll commissioned by Airbnb, nearly three-quarters of US adults support allowing renters to share their apartments on a short-term basis 2. Airbnb-friendly apartments help unlock hosting for tenants who may be especially cost burdened right now and whose lease terms and building rules have prevented them from hosting part-time. Consumer prices continue to rise with food, transportation and housing seeing additional increases in October 3. Hosts on Airbnb are using the income earned from sharing their home to help them cover higher costs of living. In the US, 41 percent of Hosts report this as a reason for hosting 4. Airbnb believes that Airbnb-friendly apartments will allow more renters to tap into the economic benefits of home sharing. Supporting responsible hosting and communities The apartments are designed to be a renter’s primary residence. To help ensure renters benefit from the program, each building has its own community rules for hosting – including a limit on the number of nights renters can host per year. In addition, all renters are expected to follow local short-term rental rules, building rules and Airbnb’s community standards. Airbnb believes cities can help renters better afford where they live by supporting Airbnb-friendly apartments and embracing policies that allow renters to share their space. The program will launch in additional cities in the coming months. To learn more, visit airbnb.com/airbnb-friendly. ​​ ​ Jeff's Bio: Originally from Texas, Jeff experienced a variety of cultures and places throughout his career in the Air Force. After dedicating 12 years to service, as both an Officer and Aviator, Jeff recently retired and embarked on a new career following his passions in interior design and home goods. Jeff became a Airbnb host almost by accident. He quickly learned the allure of thoughtful home design, and found the perfect opportunity to combine his passions and entrepreneurial spirit when his apartment complex offered up the option to Host up to 90 days of the year through the Airbnb Friendly Apartments program. He and his partner, Amador, now Host their 1-bedroom apartment when they travel or when there are major events in town. About Airbnb Airbnb was born in 2007 when two Hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home, and has since grown to over 4 million Hosts who have welcomed over 1.5 billion guest arrivals in almost every country across the globe. Every day, Hosts offer unique stays and experiences that make it possible for guests to connect with communities in a more authentic way. ​ ​ Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com
