NFL Hall of Famers Issue Call to Bergen County Men to "Know Your Stats" During Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
Holy Name Medical Center Hosts Seminar on Tuesday, September 21
Teaneck, NJ - On Tuesday, September 21, Holy Name Medical Center will encourage men to "Know Your Stats about Prostate Cancer®," the second-leading cause of cancer death among American men. Holy Name urologist John Scheuch, MD will be the featured presenter, discussing the importance of prostate cancer screening, the impact of prostate cancer on American men and the range of treatment options.
Led by Pro Football Hall of Fame player and prostate cancer survivor Mike Haynes, "Know Your Stats" is a national prostate cancer awareness campaign from the American Urological Association (AUA) Foundation and the National Football League (NFL). Now in its second year, the campaign is bringing the message to fans across the country, educating men and their loved ones about the importance of prostate health. Intuitive Surgical is a supporter of this community education program.
One in every six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and African American men are more than twice as likely to die from the disease.
