PROSTATE CANCER: DELIBERATIVE EVENT JUNE 2016

In June 2016 we held a deliberative event at Thackray Medical Museum, in collaboration with Leeds South and East CCG, to take a look back at what we have achieved through our 1 in 4 men prostate cancer awareness programme, and how we can continue to work together to further reduce the prevalence of prostate cancer in black men.

We had a number of highly knowledgeable and influential speakers at the event including;

Professor Alan White – Centre for Men’s Health

Dr Peter Branney – Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University

Pastor George Crawford – BME Cancer Voice Champion

Ms Heather Nelson – CEO Black Health Initiative

Here are some pictures of them in action…
