What Black Men Need to Know About Prostate Cancer:
The Science Behind the Statistics and Ways to Improve Health Outcomes
Thursday, June 3rd
7:00 – 8:30pm Central
The Black Men's Prostate Cancer Initiative's second webinar is "What Black Men Need to Know About Prostate Cancer: The Science Behind the Statistics and Ways to Improve Health Outcomes."
The facts are clear; prostate cancer impacts Black Men differently. Join our panel of experts in a conversation about the role race plays in prostate cancer and what we can do as a community to change the outcomes.
We will look at what the data says right now and, more importantly, what needs to change to improve the outcomes for Black Men and their loved ones.
- Is it all just biology?
- Should Black Men get screened earlier for prostate cancer?
- Are there resources available to help navigate the healthcare system?
- What resources are available if you have received a prostate cancer diagnosis?
We look forward to exploring these topics,
and more, with our panel of experts:
