Sanghavi, MD, associate professor of pediatrics and chief of pediatric cardiology, appeared on NBC Nightly News in a segment about new recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that call for boys aged 11 and 12 to receive the HPV vaccine.
