The University of Kentucky Prevention Research Center’s (PRC)success with a cervical cancer prevention DVD, known as 1-2-3 Pap, has led to improved completion of the humanpapillomavirus (HPV) vaccine series. To help prevent cervical cancer, researchers at the University of Kentucky PRC developed and tested 1-2-3- Pap, an educational video that encourages young adult women in rural Appalachian Kentucky to complete the series. Out of 178 young women who watched the video, 77 completed the series. Of those who did not watch the video (166 young women), 53 completed the series. Researchers found that participants who viewed the video were more than twice as likely (2.44 times) to complete the series than those who did not.
The University of Kentucky PRC is working with partners to adapt this model so it can be repeated in other underserved areas with high rates of cervical cancer. The program was adapted and adopted by 18 local health departments in Kentucky, reaching a total of 41 counties. This successful distribution led to requests from North Carolina and West Virginia for assistance in developing versions tailored to their states. The West Virginia version was widely distributed by the West Virginia Immunization Network. An article about the outreach for and implementation of the 1-2-3 Pap video program will be published in the August 2015 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

|2014 National Community Health Worker Advocacy Survey Reports||
The 2014 National Community Health Worker Advocacy Survey (NCHWAS) is the largest on-line survey of Community Health Workers (CHW) conducted to date. NCHWAS represents the voices of approximately 1,767 CHWs from 45 United States and 4 US territories. Data gathered through NCHWAS is intended to be ‘open source’ and used for CHW workforce development and sustainability. The NCHWAS aims to describe (1) the state of CHWs as a professional field and (2) the impact of CHW community advocacy on community engagement to address health disparities. Although Community Health Workers or CHWs go by a variety of titles including, Promotora de Salud, Community Health Representatives, Community Health Aides, Peer Educators, and Patient Navigators to name just a few, we use the term Community Health Worker or CHWs as the umbrella term to describe the workforce.

|2017 State of Tobacco Control Report||
The 15th annual American Lung Association "State of Tobacco Control" report evaluates states and the federal government on the proven-effective tobacco control laws and policies necessary to save lives. This includes tobacco prevention and cessation funding, programs and insurance coverage; smokefree workplace laws; increased tobacco taxes; aggressive implementation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act; and new for our 2017 report: raising the minimum age of sale for tobacco products to 21. The report assigns grades based on laws and regulations designed to prevent and reduce tobacco use in effect as of January 2017. The federal government, all 50 state governments and the District of Columbia are graded to determine if their laws and policies are adequately protecting citizens from the enormous toll tobacco use takes on lives, health and the economy.
