Prostate Cancer Awareness

The Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN) and AARP-Georgia are teaming up to bring the “Daddy’s Boys” stage play to the Riverside EpiCenter in Austell, on January 12, 2019, for two performances at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. With highly entertaining music, drama and comedy, “Daddy's Boys” tells the story of a widowed father and his sons coming together through fractured relationships when faced with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is a crisis among African American men and knowledge is the best defense against this disease.

Join WCLK this evening at 6pm or on demand here to hear Your Health Connection as we discuss prostate cancer.  September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  JaQuitta Williams is our host, and is a cancer survivor herself.  She's joined by Ralph C. T. Franklin, a prostate cancer survivor, and Dr. Walter Falconer, a urologist.  They'll take phone calls live and also take questions via Twitter @jaquittaw and @CCRTD.

WCLK is the Jazz AND public affairs of the city.  We have been since 1974.  Our current partnership with the Center for Cancer Research And Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University is designed to increase awareness of prostate cancer, which kills a disproportionate number of African American men.
