Prostate cancer speaker to give talk in Oakville
July 18, 2012 by Martin
A joint forum presented by the Oakville/Mississauga and Brampton Prostate Cancer Survivors Group and Janssen Inc. hopes to raise awareness and educate the public on treatment options and symptoms of prostate cancer, with the potential assistance of local print companies.
An estimated 1 in 6 males will contract prostate cancer in their lifetime, however survival rates can be extremely high with early treatment and detection, which are the focal point of the talk given to the audiences.
Dr. Neil Fleshner, who works for Princess Margaret Hospital, has been named as the guest speaker for the July 24 talk, which will take place at Le Dome in Oakville, on North Service Road. The admission-free talk will have refreshments and Fleshner’s upcoming talk will focus on new technique in treating prostrate cancer.
A debilitating and devastating disease that fortunately has also seen many recent advances, the forum will be an opportunity to educate men and their families on the importance of screening and early detection, highlighting the advances of recent medical breakthroughs.
Local printers can play an important role in distributing vital information on behalf of the Oakville/Mississauga and Brampton Prostate Cancer Survivors Group through the circulation of printed material. Flyer printing or brochure printing of symptoms and treatment options can make easy-to-reference printed paraphernalia for future consultation. Attendees may also choose to circulate printed material to other family members and friends unable to attend the July 24 talk.
Attendees are asked to RSVP their attendance by emailing Bruce Hartman through the Inside Halton website.
