The Prostate Cancer Research Institute’s annual conference is the leading education and support conference for prostate cancer patients and their caregivers.
The conference provides a weekend of educational sessions on the latest treatment options, lifestyle changes, and quality of life issues presented by world-renowned physicians and researchers. The keynote sessions are moderated by Dr. Mark Moyad, a leader in the fight against prostate cancer, making it personal and relevant to the patients in the audience.
In addition, there are opportunities throughout the 3-day event to participate in Q&A's with the faculty, hear in-depth presentations targeted towards specific treatment options, attend support groups with other patients, and meet with various organizations and companies who provide services and products for prostate cancer patients.
The Prostate Cancer Research Institute is a charitable not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of men's lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community.
PCRI was founded in 1996 by internationally recognized prostate cancer oncologists Mark C. Scholz, MD and Stephen B. Strum, MD, with support from Daniel Freeman Hospital Foundation. Drs. Scholz’s and Strum’s vision was that: "an organization providing insightful clinical research in combination with high-level educational activities directed at both the patient and physician, would greatly enhance outcomes for prostate cancer patients everywhere".
