Description
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in men today. One in seven men will have prostate cancer during his lifetime. Because there are no symptoms during the early stages of prostate cancer, screenings and yearly check-ups are critically important to catching cancer early.

Don’t miss your chance to learn about prostate health from two of UW Medicine’s most renowned physicians on the subject, Dr. Kevin Ostrowski and Dr. Jonathan Wright. They will talk about screening and prevention measures, cancer diagnosis and treatment, and post-treatment care.

Partners and guests of any gender are welcome at this event.
