Three helpful upcoming webinars


Three upcoming webinars deal with (a) the diagnosis and work-up of clinically significant forms of localized prostate cancer; (b) handling anxiety and related issues for men on active surveillance (AS); and (c) whether AS is appropriate for African Americans and others of African ethnicity. See below for details.

On Wednesday, June 30, at 7:00 to 8:30 pm Eastern, the Cancer Support Community and Prostate Cancer International will be presenting a webinar on the diagnosis and work-up of men with clinically significant forms of prostate cancer (e.g., Gleason 4 + 3 = 7 or higher or other factors suggesting clinically significant disease). The featured speaker will be Prof. Eric Klein, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic. He will be addressing current and potential new ways to properly identify such patients among the previously undiagnosed and among men progressing on active surveillance.

You will be able to take advantage of this educational webinar in three ways:

On Saturday, June 26, at 12:00 (i.e., noon) to 1:30 pm Eastern, Active Surveillance Patients International is presenting a webinar on mood and anxiety issues and how they may impact decisions about starting and staying on active surveillance for relatively favorable risk form of localized prostate cancer. The featured speaker will be Alan J. Hsu, MD, a board-certified psychiatrist who works at Moores Cancer Center, UC San Diego Health, in San Diego.
