Mission Statement

Our mission is to save lives through awareness and the education of men, the women in their lives as well as the medical community about the prevalence of prostate cancer, the importance of early detection, available treatment options and other men's health issues. To conduct nation wide screenings for men and perform research that will help the detection and treatment of prostate cancer and other mens health issues.

Description

The Prostate Cancer Education Council (PCEC) was founded in 1989, and is a non-profit 501-3c organization. The Council is comprised of a consortium of leading physicians, health educators, scientists and prostate cancer advocates.

As the founder and coordinator of the national Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (PCAW) Program, we have screened more than 3,000,000 men across the country for the disease and have become one of the largest and most successful health screening projects in the world. Through hundreds of hospitals, clinics, private physicians and health centers we are able to bring free screenings each year to more than 125,000 men.
