Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
PUT PROSTATE CANCER CHECK-UPS ON THE BACK TO SCHOOL LIST FOR DAD
Prostate Cancer Awareness Month raises educates about the critical importance of early detection in saving men’s lives. LUGPA and Henry Schein Cares, the global corporate social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc., are partnering to call on families across the country to put prostate cancer check-ups on the calendar for the men in their lives. While September is back to school time for many families, it is also Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. To increase public awareness about the importance of early detection we launched this initiative.
