UF Health to host Power Over Prostate Cancer event

Doctor consultation

The UF Health Cancer Center’s Community-Partnered Cancer Disparities Research Collaborative (CDRC) and its partners will host “Power Over Prostate Cancer: A Gathering for Black Men and the Family Members Who Love Them.” 

The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 11, at Springhill Missionary Baptist Church at 120 SE Williston Road. 

The goal is to offer Black men with prostate cancer and others information on new treatments and ways to prevent prostate cancer. It allows Black men and their families to share and learn ways to cope with the disease.

Black men are nearly twice as likely to develop prostate cancer than white men and other men of color and twice as like to die from it. 

In addition to the advice from UF Health oncologists, the event will offer group discussions for cancer survivors, sessions for spouses of cancer survivors, a question-and-answer panel, psychologists, and more.
