The Prostate Cancer Summit is a dynamic and interactive forum to connect, learn, and share hope. It is designed to arm patients with knowledge about prostate cancer, provide support and tools for caregivers taking care of a loved one with prostate cancer, and engage patient advocates about advancing the field. Whether you’re a patient arming yourself with knowledge about the disease and next steps in fighting it; a caregiver looking for support and tools to take care of a loved one; or a fierce advocate engaging with leaders to speak out for the cause, the Prostate Cancer Summit is for you.

This year we've added a community "Think Tank" on Friday afternoon, February 9, 2024. The Prostate Cancer Community Think Tank will bring together patients, caregivers, clinicians and scientists to strategize around key research questions in the field. It will be an opportunity to engage with UCSD investigators and the prostate cancer community through an interactive small group discussion. The event will culminate in the establishment of priority topics for research strategy development. UCSD Moores Cancer Center is committed to partnering with patients in delivering discoveries to the clinic.

Register today and be among the first to see what's on the cutting edge of research in prostate cancer, learn the latest about living with and caring for those who have prostate cancer, and experience the difference that advocacy can make in the lives of patients and their families!

Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks will be provided.
