Department of Urology to host community prostate cancer lecture

The UW Department of Urology will host “Making Sense of the News: Prostate Cancer Screening, Treatment and Prevention” February 19, 6-7 p.m., at the Health Science Learning Center at 750 Highland Avenue in Madison. This is the latest program in the Community Urologic Education Series (CUES), a quarterly lecture series established to help keep the community healthy and informed on how to treat and prevent urologic disease. The Department of Urology is part of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American men and the second leading cause of cancer death. Recently, there has been increasing confusion regarding screening for prostate and other cancers.

The February 19 discussion will feature Dr. David F. Jarrard, a urologic oncology specialist, and Kristina Penniston, PhD, a nutritionist who works in the Department of Urology. The discussion will focus on understanding of risk factors, detection and treatment of prostate cancer, and prevention with a focus on nutrition.

The talk is free and open to the public. Attendees should RSVP by February 12 at (608) 262-0759 or Copyright © 2017 The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
