Register for the Second Annual
Health Equity Symposium


Register for the Second 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. ZERO’s second annual Health Equity Symposium will take place virtually on November 5 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. It can be accessed online from any computer or mobile device. The event will address the status of prostate cancer disparities and what can be done to eliminate them. Register today for a chance to hear and interact with researchers, healthcare providers, patients/survivors, and community members committed to achieving prostate cancer health equity.
