Review for Urology Research and Education Foundation, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This active organization has been in existence for 10 years providing support for prostate cancer survivors, promoting community based, focused risk assessment for prostate cancer and advocating a healthy lifestyle and early detection.

Board members and volunteers have personal connections to the cause of Men's Health and a passion for community service. Among the projects funded by the foundation are original research in the field of cancer detection by ultrasound and invited speakers on topics of interest to the population at risk.

As a urologist treating prostate cancer for 25 years, I remain impressed by the dedication of those who survive prostate cancer to help enlighten other men and their families. This foundation helps provide the information and resources necessary to ultimately make all men survivors and not victims.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

facilitating the early diagnosis of prostate cancer, literally saving individual lives by early detection.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase it's reach to other cities around the country.

Role:  Board Member & I have personally conducted hundreds of screening evaluations and risk assessments for prostate cancer to populations of men at risk.
