In case you weren't able to attend, we have an archive of past meeting discussions...
We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month, except August. There is no charge and we welcome companions and families to join us as well.
Monthly meetings provide a forum for medical experts to inform group members about treatment options and post-treatment issues. Though we do not offer medical advice, we do feel it is important for men to take control and make informed decisions based on factual information to plan a course of action.
Whether you are recently diagnosed, are currently under treatment, or wish to learn more about prostate cancer you are welcome to attend.
