Prostate cancer and African Americans — greater risk, greater needs


An OpEd by Thomas Farrington — the founder and president of the Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN) — appears in The Washington Post today. It is entitled, “Prostate cancer discriminates: understanding the unique and urgent needs of black men.”

This week PHEN holds its 8th annual African American Prostate Cancer Disparity Summit in Washington, DC. The meeting is free to members of the public. For more details about the meeting, see Farrington’s OpEd or visit the PHEN web site.
