    FREE Prostate Cancer Early Detection  Workshop, Tests and Exams
    Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) tests and Digital Rectal Exams (DRE)

    HAMPTON, VA 23669

    WORKSHOP TIME: 8:30-9:30 AM

    PSA AND DRE Test and Exam Time: 9:30-11:00 AM

    CALL 757-827-0488
    (Please provide your Name and Telephone Number.)

    The workshop is designed for WOMEN and MEN. Women are encouraged to bring the men in their lives who are likely to benefit from knowing the risks of not being tested and examined on a regular basis. Men with a family history (father or brother) of prostate cancer and African-Americans are at highest risk of having prostate cancer and should be tested and examined much earlier than other men.

    This event is sponsored by Queen Street Baptist Church, Riverside Cancer Care Center and the Hampton Roads Prostate Health Forum.

    Only men get prostate cancer, but it is a disease that impacts the entire family. WIVES and loved ones must be actively involved to SAVE OUR MEN.

    The next 200+ Men membership meeting will be held on Saturday, January 11th, at 9:30 a.m., at the Booker T. Washington High School, 1111 Park Avenue in Norfolk.

    We continue to explore opportunities for 200+ Men to participate in service projects in the region that are consistent with our mission to influence and build better communities by encouraging, inspiring and enabling young people and adults to reach their highest potential. Community service projects, such as those offered through Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads, offer a unique opportunity for us to continue building better communities in partnership with other organizations. Please plan to join us for this very special presentation. Refreshments and networking begin at 9:00 am.
