4/26/2022 – Disparities in Prostate Cancer, In Honor of National Minority Health Month
• Talk to your doctor about prostate cancer screening: Black men should start at age 40.
• Non-white patients are less likely to get genetic testing, which may help identify a precision treatment or shed light on family risk of cancer. Ask your doctor if this type of testing is right for you.
• Involving patients and community members as research partners, rather than as subjects, may help increase understanding of disparities and how to address them.
• Call your local cancer center’s office of community outreach to get connected with area resources.

4/30/2020 – PCF-Us TOO Webinar on Disparities in Prostate Cancer
Racial disparities exist in rates of prostate cancer diagnosis and death: in the US, African American men are about 75% more likely to be diagnosed with and more than twice as likely to die from prostate cancer than Caucasian men. Among other men of color, disparities exist but are less well-described. During National Minority Health Month, please join us as PCF and Us TOO host a webinar to discuss recent research. We’ll also hear from an African American prostate cancer survivor and a caregiver of a Veteran who is battling the disease.
