WHAT: Emory Healthcare Section of Urology and the Winship Cancer Center of Emory University are offering reduced cost prostate cancer screenings. The screening exam will consist of a blood test for prostate cancer (prostate-specific antigen or PSA) and a digital rectal exam (DRE). The screening costs $10, which covers the cost of processing the PSA. Payment is due at the time of service.

WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 9, and Thursday, Sept. 10, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

WHERE: The Emory Clinic, Building A, second floor, on the Emory University campus.

WHO:The screening is available to men over the age of 50, or men over 40 who are at high risk (family history of prostate cancer or African-American descent). Men who have been treated for prostate cancer are not eligible and should seek follow-up care from their physician.

WHY:The screenings are being offered as part of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and are being done in conjunction with the American Cancer Society's Prostate Screening 98 Initiative.
