Your Taxes and What They Have to do With HPV

One of my favorite blogs is The Blog that Ate Manhattan.  TBTAM is written by Margaret Polaneczky, an OB/GYN in Manhattan, and is a gold mine of terrific articles about women’s health and, believe it or not, can’t miss recipes.  Dr. Peggy’s daughter is in college right here in Central Ohio (not Ohio State) and this past April, Dr. Peggy wrote a nice post about her visit to our neck of the woods:

So what does all of this have to do with taxes?  Well one of the many wonderful things those pesky reductions in your paycheck underwrite is a website for the Office of Women’s Health creatively named Womenshealth.gov.  I can’t say enough good things about this site.  It’s chock full of good stuff and recently featured an interview with Dr. Polaneczky.  As usual, she’s interesting and full of information. You might be especially interested in her spin on HPV infections and the Gardasil vaccine.  Keep in mind that it’s just her opinion – the Women’s Health website has other good resources for information too.  You can find them here:
