Prostate cancer is estimated to claim the lives of almost 30,000 men this year. That’s 30,000 husbands, fathers, brothers and friends.
One of our best defenses against this disease is education and awareness, granting men and their families the knowledge and power to take the appropriate steps toward optimal health and longevity.
To support this goal, some of New York City’s most prestigious prostate cancer treatment centers are joining forces to host a symposium on Saturday, September 22, 2018. This inaugural NYC Prostate Cancer Summit: An Advocacy, Awareness and Educational Event to Empower Patients and Loved Ones will be led by experts from Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
