PHEN brings its 2022 "Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally" to South Carolina during the months of July and August with a focus on the cities of Charleston, Columbia and Greenville. This follows successful 2022 rally launches in North Carolina and Georgia. 2021 rallies were held in Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, Philadelphia, PA and Jacksonville, FL. 

The Disparity Rally mobilizes local community leaders, clergy, policymakers, doctors, and patients to join PHEN in a broad prostate cancer awareness campaign by recording messages for outreach on radio and social media. This public awareness campaign will run for 3-4 weeks on radio stations in Charleston (WMLG, WWWZ, WTMZ, WJNI), Columbia (WWDM, WLXC, WFMV) and Greenville (WJMZ). The South Carolina rally culminates with a

virtual town hall meeting on Thursday, August 18th, focusing on factors contributing to the disparity and on collective efforts that can be undertaken in South Carolina to address it.  

"Black men in South Carolina and around the country will be hit the hardest by this prostate cancer crisis," says Thomas Farrington, PHEN Founder and President. “Our disparity rally raises prostate cancer awareness and increase knowledge about early detection, treatments and care." Read more
