Free public screenings of Someone You Love

The team that produced Someone You Love, the documentary about families affected by HPV, is now available for free public screenings in 11 states. This opportunity was made available by building coalitions of sponsors to purchase the state license for free public screenings. This means that if you live in one of the states that has this available, you can order a DVD (plus shipping) and a free screening license is included free of charge. This is a $390 value.

States that currently have this opportunity available include: Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

If your state is not listed and you would like to learn about building a coalition in your state, contact Cheryl at Cheryl@hpvepidemic.com.
