“Welcome to PHEN’s 2021 Annual Summit!  Throughout prostate cancer awareness month, we are providing four exciting and in-depth sessions addressing some of today’s most important issues around the prostate cancer racial disparity. We invite you to participate and learn from these summit session – and join efforts toward eliminating the largest racial disparity for any type of major cancer.  A motivated commitment to this phase of the fight against prostate cancer is urgently needed.”
