A free educational seminar to coincide with September’s Prostate Cancer Awareness month.

Prostate cancer is extremely common in men as they age. Fortunately, in many cases, it can be either safely observed or treated with an excellent chance of cure. Plan to join board-certified urologist Dr. Ryan Terlecki who directs Wake Forest Men’s Health for this free event to highlight this condition and related issues involving urinary control and sexual function after cancer therapy. Spouses and partners are welcome and encouraged to attend.

You might be surprised to learn that, when surveyed, a large number of entrepreneurs list marketing, rather than funding, as their number one need. This is why we offer our weekly Marketing Outside-the-Box Series.

Do you want to make more money with your business? Are you willing to think outside the box? In this lunchtime series, we explore innovative and radical ideas for marketing your business. Each week, we introduce you to a new cutting-edge (but proven) marketing strategy or technology to help you attract, retain and increase revenue from customers.

Bring your own bag (or box) lunch to enjoy while you learn!
