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.
