That sounds most impressive David. Educating these students about HPV will undoubtedly SAVE LIVES - which is some achievement! I only wish the awareness of HPV and it's link to oral cancer would be raised more in the U.K. The major cancer hospital where my partner is being treated for tonsil cancer didn't even test for HPV. It was only after a lot of insistence, reminding and chasing up that we got the histology of "strongly positive for HPV 16".

PS I am sure the flan was delicious!
