The Alabama Department of Public Health Comprehensive Cancer Control Program created this website to capture prostate-health efforts across the state, to serve as a prostate health clearinghouse, and to promote discussions between patients and providers.
If you are a healthcare provider or agency that provides prostate services or an organization that promotes prostate cancer awareness, please contact us. We are currently collecting information about those who provide prostate services and the services they provide.
On June 1, 2010, the Alabama Public Health Training Network produced a live broadcast, "Bridging the Communication Gap Between Physicians and Patients: Understanding Functional Health Literacy Issues Related to Prostate Cancer," educating physicians and patients about the importance of clear communication when discussing health related issues. The video and handouts are available on demand.
