Gilda’s Club hosts viewing of documentary on human papillomavirus

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

HPV or human papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted infection.

In fact, it's an epidemic.

At the University of Evansville on Wednesday night, Gilda's Club hosted a viewing of a documentary called "Someone You Love."

We're told in Indiana alone, another woman dies every three to four days from cervical cancer, which is almost always caused by HPV.

And it's not just women.

It's estimated that by 2020, HPV related oral cancers in men will surpass HPV related cervical cancer in women.

If you missed Wednesday’s showing, there will be another one next Tuesday evening at Ivy Tech.
