Our Conference Series

Audience attentive lors des conférence PROCURE sur le cancer de la prostate

One of PROCURE’s missions is to inform people about prostate cancer. To do this, we organize conferences aimed at providing information, support and raising awareness to all men and women. The PROCURE Conference Series represent an eloquent example of the need for information.

The level of participation of those affected by prostate cancer at our two annual conferences, broadcast live with simultaneous translation on the web, provides us one of the most valuable indicator.

Indeed, the various topics discussed in relation to prostate cancer, treatment options, sexuality, nutrition, physical exercise, as well as new treatments and managing side effects, has generated close to 40,000 views on our YouTube channel since 2010.
