Description:

December’s group will focus on health disparities and the molecular drivers of prostate cancer. We will be joined by Dr. Adam Murphy, who studies the health disparities faced by minorities in prostate cancer, including HIV infected men and African Americans. His recent work focuses on the role of vitamin D deficiency, genetics, and biomarkers in men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The Prostate Cancer Support Group offers opportunities to share personal support and connect with others affected by prostate cancer and learn about treatment options and the potential impact of side effects on a man and his spouse or partner, and his overall quality of life. Facilitated by the Us TOO Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network, these interactive groups facilitate conversations to exchange information among group members assembled with the common goal of empowering each other with the knowledge that comes from experience.

We welcome all people affected by prostate cancer, including patients, caregivers, spouses and partners. You don't have to receive care at Northwestern Medicine to attend.
