Chances to hear from the new President and CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation


At the end of September, the Prostate Cancer Foundation appointed Charles {“Chuck”) Ryan, MD — formerly of the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Minnesota — as the new President and CEO of the Foundation. And there will be two opportunities for patients to hear directly from Dr. Ryan in the near future.

In the first case, on Wednesday, October 20, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern (4:00 p.m. Pacific) Dr. Ryan — in conjunction with Alicia Morgans, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Center– will be discussing the work-up and management of men with castration-resistant prostate cancer (i.e., after disease progression on standard forms of androgen deprivation therapy). This has been one of Dr. Ryan’s primary areas of interest from a research perspective over the past decade. This webinar is being provided by the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky in association with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Prostate Cancer International. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of Dr. Ryan and Dr. Morgans following their initial presentation.

In the second case, Dr. Ryan will be a key speaker at the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s special PCF Doctor-Patient Summit for patients, caregivers, loved ones, and anyone interested in sharing and learning more about the patient experience.This special event will be a part of the 28th annual PCF Scientific Retreat, and will take place on Thursday, October 28, at 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific). In his opening presentation, Dr. Ryan will be sharing his vision for prostate cancer research and treatment in the future.
