Dr. Owens and Jim Williams Discuss Prostate Cancer Awareness with abc27’s Amy Kehm. Since 1 in 7 men will get prostate cancer, it is important for men to be screened beginning at age 50 or earlier if there is a family history of the disease.
They also discussed the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Harrisburg coming up on Friday, September 22, at 5 p.m. The event has drawn 500 attendees in years past and this year organizers expect 600+.
Former American Idol and nominated Male Vocalist and Male Entertainer of the Year, Jimmy Charles, will perform his song, “Superman” which is about a prostate cancer patient, at the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk. Jimmy will then hold an Afterparty Benefit Concert at Flinchy’s in Camp Hill, following the Run at 10 p.m.
The next morning, Saturday, September 23, the Pennsylvania Prostate Cancer Coalition is holding their first Pennsylvania Prostate Cancer Conference. The Conference is a half-day CME-certified conference presenting the latest evidence, research, and model programs that are proven effective or being studied to improve prostate cancer early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
The goal of the Prostate Cancer Conference is to engage providers, patients/survivors, and care givers to reduce the burden of prostate cancer and brigde the gap between research and practice. There will be two tracks of breakout sessions – one for clinicians and one for survivorship/advocacy.
The cost to attend is $50 for those seeking CME credits or $25 for all other attendees. To register, visit https://paprostatecancer.org/conference2017/.
