ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer to collaborate with Biden administration to minimize prostate cancer deaths and improve experiences of patients and survivors

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- OCCASION: ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer was invited to convene a White House discussion on prostate cancer as a part of the Biden administration's Cancer Moonshot Initiative. Launched in 2016, the Biden administration intends to reduce the national death rate from cancer by at least 50% over the next 25 years and improve the experience of people and their families living with and surviving cancer.

Representatives from ZERO (Jamie Bearse, President and CEO of ZERO; Dr. Reginald Tucker-Seeley, Vice President of Health Equity; Alison Manson, Vice President of Government Relations); and prostate cancer survivor Marlon Hudson led a roundtable discussion to increase prostate cancer awareness and access to screening among men of color.

The roundtable offered HHS Secretary Becerra four policy opportunities:

  1. Support for investments in research at NIH, DOD, and CDC;
  2. Creation of a federal coordination committee to move research toward the end of prostate cancer;
  3. Review the discussion of prostate cancer screening in federal patient-facing materials to ensure materials encourage patients to receive timely screenings; and
  4. Increased support for investment in education and outreach to Black men at CDC.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 29, 2022; Pre-recorded interview soundbites with prostate cancer experts available

WHERE: For prostate cancer facts/statistics, expert bios, and interview soundbites (Alison Manson and Marlon Hudson), please click here.

WHY: Over 3 million men are living with prostate cancer, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American men. Black men are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and over twice as likely to die from prostate cancer as White men.

HOW: For additional information, contact Jessica Fetrow, Media Coordinator at jessica.fetrow@zerocancer.org or 202-923-1113.
