Global Prostate Cancer Alliance investigates why Black men in the UK die at twice the rate as White men.
The Global Prostate Cancer Alliance requests your participation in a United Kingdom focused project regarding Prostate Cancer killing Black men at twice the rate as it does White descent. We want to understand how Black men in the UK manage their disease while facing this massive disparity.
First are telephone interviews with Black men diagnosed with prostate cancer regarding their treatment experiences and quality of life. The interviews, which will be conducted anonymously, then reviewed and distributed in booklet and web based pdf.
The USA interviews (which you can see at http://twiceasmany.org ) are almost complete and, today, we begin the UK arm.
Please invite Black men diagnosed with prostate cancer who live anywhere in the UK to email Darryl Mitteldorf at email@example.com to arrange a day and time for a telephone interview of approximately 30-45 minutes. Please be so kind as to spread the word about this.
The second project will be to create a live SKYPE conference between Black men from the USA and the UK to discuss prostate cancer. We hope to compare and contrast quality of life issues, treatment types and community awareness, in the hope of producing better understanding and actionable items that men everywhere might use. We hope to create this event in the Fall of 2016. Viewing will be open to everyone, worldwide.
