While we all must remain safe and socially distant due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is important for everyone to continue to monitor and address their health concerns, and stay connected to others. Us TOO has virtual prostate cancer support groups that continue to meet regularly and host guest speakers. These meetings can be accessed by phone or by internet, and can be attended from any location. For a list of groups, please visit:
