Dr. Donald TrumpOctober at RPCI was dedicated to promoting early diagnosis and screening in the number one cancer in men, prostate cancer.  During the month, we held two events to encourage early detection and screening among high risk populations: Know Your Statistics at Ralph Wilson Stadium and Cruisin’ for a Cure here on the grounds of RPCI. The events educated men 40 and older about risk factors for prostate cancer and offered free screening tests performed by RPCI doctors. More than 250 men from across Western New York attended.
