Us TOO is initiating 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 phases of the disease is very important since prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men and accounts for nearly 30,000 deaths annually. But with informed decision making, the disease can be detected early and managed effectively. The conversations will provide an overview on prostate cancer, physician presentations, educational materials, survivor stories, sponsor introductions and a complimentary lunch.
We encourage you to attend one of these events if you’re in the neighborhood. And please pass along the information to your friends and family who may be interested in the conversation. Remember – knowledge is power.
