Session II: September 15

Effective Community Awareness, Outreach & Engagement Strategies

PHEN launched its “Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally” in 2021 as a national effort to raise awareness and mobilize support within local communities nationwide. This effort includes developing public service announcements by political leaders, doctors, patients, and community leaders which are promoted via social media, radio, and e-newsletters. This also includes the Daddy’s Boys film episodes. This session will review these activities, and plans for expanding this on-going awareness rally.
