Awareness raising

As part of our program for increasing awareness about prostate cancer and its detection and treatment, a very successful activity is the running of information marquees at local and regional events. In the past we have operated such marquees at events such as the Prime Minister's XI cricket matches, Queanbeyan Show, Council of ACT Motor Clubs ‘Wheels’ display, auto shows, Murrumbatemen Field Days, Cooma Mens’ Health Expo, Fernleigh Open Garden Weekend, BBQ's at cooperating retail stores such as Bunnings, and the Canberra Multicultural Festivals.



At such events we provide literature and information relating to prostate health, PSA testing, detection of prostate cancer and treatment.

Here are some pics of members participating in a sample of such events. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version of the pic.
