Active discussion participation makes your learning experience much richer. Discussion in this course is designed to simulate a classroom discussion. As others join in the discussion, read what has already been posted and then add substantively to the conversation. Post by Wednesday! Check the discussions as often as you can to see what others have posted and to respond. The earlier in the week that you begin posting, the deeper the conversation and learning will be.
The first question in this discussion is opinion and experience-based, so you can begin immediately.

The need for HPV prevention cuts across groups and cultures. Choose a cultural group of interest and discuss how you would address the unique characteristics of that group in providing HPV prevention services? Try to choose a group that is different from the groups other students are discussing. As you share cultural perspectives, discuss common themes that emerge, as well as the rich differences in approaches.
