We hope that you’re enjoying the summer season and doing well. The arrival of the August issue of the Hot SHEET newsletter is a reminder that September – Prostate Cancer Awareness Month – is fast approaching! 

Please join us at the next Prostate Cancer Pathways for Patients and Caregivers event in Englewood, NJ, on Saturday, September 29.  This free event/webcast will provide a brief overview of men’s wellness and health risks including prostate cancer, followed by medical experts presenting educational content for managing prostate cancer that’s newly diagnosed, recurring, or advanced. We’ll also feature a presentation led by Dr. Anne Katz on sex and intimacy relative to prostate cancer. Register to attend in person, or watch the online webcast with live audio and video from the event. 

And check out the recorded video from the June 23rd Seattle Pathways event. Content from the entire day is cataloged with a link to specific segments noted by topic for quick and easy access.

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for the 14th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run in Lincoln Park on Sunday, September 9. It’s an important opportunity for raising prostate cancer awareness during the month of September (Prostate Cancer Awareness Month) and for raising funds that help support the work of Us TOO. If you can’t attend in-person, please consider registering as a virtual mover at no charge and inviting your network of friends and family to support an activity of your choice in recognition of SEA Blue.  

Registration is also open for the 2018 PCRI Prostate Cancer Patient Conference . Hosted at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott on September 7-9, the PCRI conference is a full-featured educational experience for prostate cancer patients and caregivers. Each day consists of easy-to-understand presentations from prostate cancer experts in every field, extended Q+A sessions, treatment-based breakout sessions, and support groups that cover every major prostate cancer topic. 

Because prostate cancer can be a couple’s disease, a woman may be subject to her own concerns in addition to those she shares with her husband/partner. A Forum for Her is a regular conference call series (and invitation-only Facebook group) from Us TOO which provides women with important peer-to-peer support. Calls are free and participants are not required to share their identity with the group. Find more information on how to join a call.

The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) is an independent nonprofit organization that works to access the clinical effectiveness and value of drugs.

It’s open to public comment until August 9, 2018. For more information on submitting a public comment, please visit the ICER stakeholder engagement page .
