Us TOO hosts Community Conversations on Prostate Cancer in cities throughout the country. These grassroots educational events address the importance of informed decision making for patients and caregivers specific to testing, active surveillance, treatment options for all phases of prostate cancer, and management of side effects.
Education about all aspects of the disease is very important since prostate cancer has no symptoms until it’s advanced. It’s also the most common cancer among men accounting for nearly 30,000 deaths annually. But with informed decision making, it’s possible to diagnose prostate cancer early and manage it effectively. The Community Conversation events provide an overview on prostate cancer, physician presentations, educational materials, survivor stories, and sponsor introductions.
The following video segments were taped during the Us TOO Community Conversation on Prostate Cancer, which was a feature presentation at the Michigan Institute of Urology’s Sixth Annual Men’s Health Event at Ford Field in Detroit, MI, on Saturday, September 24, 2016. The same information was discussed in the morning session by Dr. Jason Hafron and again in the afternoon session by Dr. Elisabeth Heath. The entire event was also broadcast live on the internet.
We also invite you to stay tuned for the latest schedule of Community Conversations on Prostate Cancer with information on cities and dates for the 2017 series.
