Facebook Live Q&A:
New Cancer Stats & Figures


ZERO Live!: Tuesday, January 15 at 4:00 PM (ET)

Mark Your Calendar

Last week, the latest statistics were released for prostate cancer diagnoses and death rates in the U.S. The stats show mortality rate at its lowest point in history, but will this level off as men are discouraged from getting screened? Many in the prostate community have questions, and we’re here to help answer them.

Tune in to ZERO’s main Facebook page on January 15 at 4 p.m. for a live Q&A discussing the latest cancer figures. ZERO’s CEO, Jamie Bearse, will talk with Dr. Nilay Gandhi, a surgeon, urologist, and member of ZERO’s Medical Advisory Board. Visit ZERO’s Facebook Events page to mark your calendar and add your questions ahead of the event on Tuesday. Hope to see you then!
