Prostate Cancer Awareness Month Hits Full Stride

As part of Foundation activities during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, four new episodes of the Urology Care Podcast will be released in September. The first podcast episode released earlier this month is an interview with prostate cancer expert and surgeon Dr. Scott Eggener of the University of Chicago.

Other podcast episodes that will be out this month include talks with prostate cancer survivors and caretakers opening up about their experiences with this disease. The following shows will be released every Thursday throughout the remainder of this special awareness month:
