We are excited to launch The Black Men's Prostate Cancer Initiative to decrease health outcome disparities in prostate cancer treatment in the Black community through support and education. The initiative’s first community education webinar is a panel discussion on diet-related health disparities within the Black community and will feature an important conversation about nutrition and its impact on prostate, sexual, heart, and overall health. While this webinar series has been developed for the initiative’s pilot program, based in the Hyde Park area of Chicago, and will focus on information relevant to the Black community, the webinars are open to any interested parties. We look forward to you joining us on Thursday, March 25, 7:00 – 8:30pm Central. Register at:
