UROLOGY RESEARCH AND EDUCATION FOUNDATION
June 26, 2011
UREF is vigorously pursing its educational mission related to Prostate cancer awareness, education and support are the focus of UREF's mission in education. The mission is accomplished through information on the UREE website, participation in health fairs, providing an annual free prostate cancer screening, and conducting a monthly support group for prostate cancer survivors and their spouses. UREF's signature event is the annual Dadfest that reaches out to the Dallas/Ft Worth community to raise awareness about prostate cancer and the importance of a healthy lifestyle to men's overall health. Another very important mission is research. With the internationally leadership of Urologist-Oncologist Dr. Pat Fox Fulgham, UREF has participated in research to attempt to identify markers in prostate biopsy tissue that would identify men who are at risk for recurrence prior to treatment. This small organization is very productive thanks to their volunteers and a dedicated board.
