ZERO's Annual Health Equity Symposium

Everyone should have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive prostate cancer, regardless of race, sexual orientation, financial resources, physical abilities, or area of residence. This aspiration is called health equity, and this aspiration informs everything that ZERO does in empowering every person who is affected by prostate cancer.

The 2nd Annual Health Equity Symposium took place on November 5, 2022, picking up where the inaugural Racial Disparities Symposium left off: addressing the status of prostate cancer disparities and what we can do to eliminate them.
