2019 Educational Symposia

PHEN and its church partners are once again hosting Prostate Health Educational Symposiums in cities and towns across the country in 2019.

Each symposium will be an in-depth educational event with participation from medical experts, church leaders, prostate cancer survivors with their family members, and community and political leaders.  PHEN pharmaceutical and other partners support these events.

Each symposium will be free and open to the public with the programs focusing on:

Healthy men to inform them about their risk for prostate cancer, early detection screening guidelines and shared decision-making

Men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer to share information about treatment options, whether to treat immediately or follow a course of active surveillance

Men with recurring and advanced prostate cancer to disseminate available treatment options including clinical trials and managing survivorship issues

Wives and caregivers to provide support and resources to assist in supporting prostate cancer survivors and themselves through the prostate cancer journey

The importance of spiritual faith in navigating the journey of hope for men facing prostate cancer and their family member

Addressing the role of women and advocates for prostate cancer survivors; and providing free prostate cancer screening

Our attendees have said, "This was an awesome experience and I wouldn't change a thing" and "Excellent event, keep providing this".
