ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is committed to bridging the gap between racial and health disparities in prostate cancer among Black men. Our team, in collaboration with our Prostate Cancer Health Equity Task Force, will help bring awareness of prostate cancer to high-risk men, strengthen existing early detection and education initiatives, and identify new ways to further address these issues in a consistent and impactful manner.
Patients, physicians, and community leaders all have a role to play in eradicating health disparities among African-Americans. Bringing together the perspectives of clinicians, patients, caretakers, and those who’ve lost loved ones to prostate cancer, ZERO’s Task Force is playing a crucial role in advising and directing programs and communications to ultimately eliminate outcome disparities amongst the African American community.
