Opening Statement for PHEN’s 18th Annual African American Prostate Cancer Disparity Summit Session One.

Mr. Thomas Farrington welcomes everyone to the 18th Annual African American Prostate Cancer Disparity Summit. Throughout prostate cancer awareness month, we are providing four exciting and in-depth sessions addressing some of today’s most important issues around the prostate cancer racial disparity. We invite you to participate and learn from these summit sessions and join efforts towards eliminating what is the largest racial disparity for any type of major cancer. A motivated commitment to this phase of the fight against prostate cancer is urgently needed.

“We know that during the COVID pandemic, prostate cancer early detection screening and treatments were delayed, and it will be sometime before we have the full and complete picture of the overall impact, but we can’t wait to begin our recovery because lives are at stake.”


“This session includes presentations and a panel discussion that will help us understand where we are today and where we need to go from here towards eliminating the prostate cancer racial disparity.”

– Thomas A. Farrington, president and founder, PHEN
