Us TOO Webinar Series
Video is now available of the fourth webinar in our series, What is Right for Me in My Prostate Cancer Treatment?, a discussion on Imaging. Continuing advances in imaging technology and usage can mean more accurate testing and diagnosis related to prostate cancer, and can help guide patients toward the best treatment options for them. The event was recorded on June 24th and featured Dr. Brian T. Helfand and Dr. Laurence Klotz. We thank series sponsors Astellas Pfizer, and webinar sponsors Blue Earth Diagnostics and Lantheus. View the video at:

The fifth, and final, webinar in this series will be on Genetics and Genomics.

Join this educational webinar and hear from a physician, VA representative, and an elected official, all who play an important role to ensure Veterans have access to screening, quality care, and treatment options.

The survey should take no longer than 20-25 minutes to complete. Please note, you will need to finish this study in one sitting.
