Penn Nursing professor Anne Teitelman designed a new app to bring cervical cancer awareness and prevention to the daily lives of young women.
The app, titled “NowIKnow,” encourages women to complete the three dose vaccine series for human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer. Despite the effectiveness of the vaccine, Teitelman said many women do not complete the six month vaccine series.
