A second “Open Conversation” in north Miami


Prostate Cancer International collaborated earlier today with the Prostate Cancer Mission at the Mission’s second “open conversation” about prostate cancer at Florida International University in north Miami, Florida.

With a faculty that included Paul Schellhammer, MD (the past-president of the American Urological Association), Gerald Chodak, MD (developer of ProstateVideos.com), Gary Deng, MD, PhD (an expert in integrative medicine), and many others, we explored the current situation with respect to everything from the new AUA guidance on PSA screening to the potential approval of sipuleucel-T (Provenge) for the treatment of hormone-refractory prostate cancer in a wide ranging discussion with breakouts and workshops over the course of a 4-hour discussion.

The entire symposium was professionally videotaped and will be made available in the near future as a series of different pieces of content that can be easily reviewed on-line or which can be downloaded as content for other prostate cancer web sites. We will be letting you know when this content is available.

The Prostate Cancer Mission was kind enough to invite your correspondent as an interviewer and moderator for a couple of the sessions and to offer a workshop on using the internet to access sound information about a broad range of topics.
