Men’s Health Matters: Prostate Cancer Round Table

October 29, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Please join the Towson – Catonsville (MD) Alumni Chapter (TCAC)
of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
for a Prostate Cancer Round Table discussion
with medical professionals from Ascension Saint Agnes Hospital.

African American men are at an increased risk for developing prostate cancer over white men and other men of color. One in seven Black men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. Overall, Black men are 1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with and 2.1 times more likely to die from prostate cancer than white men.

The panel discussion will include but not be limited to a comprehensive overview of the most significant advancements in the treatment and detection of prostate cancer, as well as valuable take-home information, will be discussed. The unique format will include audience discussions, and there will be a focus on how new information fits into current community practices. Attendees will get an insightful look at more than one side of a question, giving them a chance to really engage.

As a public service organization TCAC hopes that this FREE forum will bring much needed value-added health information to the minority and underserved communities of the Baltimore Metropolitan area. The event will take place on the campus of the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) at the Information Technology Building (ITE 102) located on Hilltop Circle.

TCAC hopes that the attendees will be able to learn about the preventative facts and treatment of prostate cancer along with discussing the mental health issues that come along with the diagnosis and treatment.
*For attendance please be prepared to present evidence of a Covid 19 vaccination
