Charles (Chuck) Maack, a prostate cancer survivor and Program Director, for Wichita, Kansas Chapter Us TOO Intl., Inc., will be attending a meeting in Atlanta this September regarding "IMPaCT" (Innovative Minds in Prostate Cancer Today). Chuck is also spreading the word about the PCRI conference in Los Angeles from September 7-9. Chuck writes:
IMPaCT is a gathering of over 600 research scientists who have received Department of Defense funding for prostate cancer research in the past. It appears this gathering will be to brainstorm innovative ideas for future prostate cancer research.
Chuck is writing to his friends in the prostate cancer community about the Los Angeles conference in the same time slot:
I would energetically encourage you to consider to make this special PCRI (Prostate Cancer
Research Institute) sponsored National Conference on Prostate Cancer gathering your travel location for the year. Notables Medical Oncologists like Dr. Strum, Dr. Mark Scholz, Dr. Charles "Snuffy" Myers, and the list goes on and on - see the URLs below - will be making presentations of up-to-date state-of-the-art appropriate treatment for our insidious disease. I absolutely KNOW you will come away from this gathering with an education regarding areas of prostate cancer you were never aware. And, you will find inner peace in meeting, visiting with, and making new friends with several hundred fellow prostate cancer patients and caregivers. SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT THIS! You will never regret attending.
Here's a letter he forwarded from Stephen Strum MD:
