  Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV, causes cancer, and yet our rates of immunization here in the islands is one of the lowest in the nation. What are the consequences of having HPV, and how can getting shots protect both women and men from this? We'll talk to experts about who needs to be concerned about this deadly virus, and why it changes the recommendations for routine care for women throughout their entire lives.

Dr. Kathy Kozak is the host of The Body Show. Mondays at 6:30 p.m. on HPR-1.
