CPHR Researchers Present at National Immunization Meeting
Researchers from the UM Center for Population Health Research are disseminating their findings on rural immunization disparities on a national stage. CPHR Epidemiology Specialist Rain Freeman (pictured above) and CPHR Investigator and School of Public & Community Health Sciences Assistant Professor Sophia Newcomer (below, right) both gave oral presentations at the 2021 American Immunization Registry Association Meeting, held August 2-4 in Portland, Oregon. Ms. Freeman presented on missed opportunities for human papillomavirus vaccination in Montana, and Dr. Newcomer presented on spatial analyses of under-vaccination patterns in early childhood in Montana. Both projects are collaborative efforts with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. CPHR is funded by a Center for Biomedical Research Excellent award (1P20GM130418) from the National Institute of General Medical sciences of the National Institutes of Health.
