African American prostate Cancer Disparity Summit 2011

This years PHEN (Prostate Health Education Network) Summit was wonderful! 

PHEN's primary mission is to increase prostate health education and awareness among the men at highest risk for prostate cancer in the United States, African Americans. Saving lives through early detection and eliminating the African American prostate cancer disparity is PHEN's education and awareness goal. PHEN's mission also includes efforts to increase the overall support and resources to wage a war on prostate cancer that will eventually lead to a cure for the disease.

I am grateful to Mr. Tom Farrington, Founder and President of PHEN, for the invitation to attend this year's Summit, and look forward to our organizations working together in the future to create awareness.
