Attention men: Parkview Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Fort Wayne TinCaps are teaming up to give you a great opportunity: a FREE PSA screening at Parkview Field on August 6 and 7.

Date: Tuesday, August 6
Time: 6 – 9 p.m.

Time: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

All testing is held in the Lincoln Conference Center at Parkview Field.
The PSA screening measures the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the blood. Elevated levels can indicate prostate cancer or other serious health issues. The test requires only a quick blood draw, which will be administered by a Parkview Health Laboratories phlebotomist. Confidential results will be sent to you.
Time slots are limited; while walk-ins may be accepted, reservations are highly recommended. Reserve your time slot by calling (260) 266-9180 by August 5.

If you are attending the TinCaps game on August 6, come and visit our volunteers at the jersey auction. The TinCaps have named us the beneficiary of this special auction and we are thrilled. Hope to see you there!

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and Us TOO International sponsored a successful seminar on prostate cancer and men’s health on Saturday, September 18. The seminar was held at Cancer Services and featured six speakers addressing topics, such as PSA Screening and Active Surveillance, Surgical Options for Prostate Cancer, Systemic Treatments such as Immunotherapy and Provenge, Nutrition, Exercise and Enhancing Men’s Sexual Health. Not surprisingly the session on enhancing sexual health was the most heavily attended. All speakers provided interesting information in an entertaining format. We hope to make this an annual event.
The Us TOO Information Table. Us TOO International provides extensive information on prostate cancer in all of its various forms and ramifications. The most popular publications were made available for attendees.
