PHEN and its church partners hosted Prostate Health Educational Symposiums in seventeen (17) cities in 2016.
Each symposium was an in-depth educational event with participation by medical experts, church leaders, prostate cancer survivors with their family members, and community and political leaders. These events were supported by PHEN pharmaceutical partners and others.

Each symposium was free and open to the public with a program which focused on:

 ► Healthy men: to inform them about their risk for prostate cancer, early detection screening guidelines and shared decision making;

► Men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer: to share information about treatment options, whether to treat immediately or follow a course of active surveillance; 

► Men with recurring and advanced prostate cancer: to disseminate available treatment options including clinical trials and managing survivorship issues; 

 ► Wives and caregivers: to provide support and resources to assist in supporting prostate cancer survivors and themselves through the prostate cancer journey; 

► The importance of spiritual faith in navigating the journey of hope for men facing prostate cancer and their family member

► Addressing the role of women and advocates
for prostate cancer survivors; and providing free prostate cancer screening.
