"Most men will be affected by a urological condition in their lifetime, whether it's prostate cancer, a bladder disorder or kidney problems," says Fray Marshall, MD, professor and chairman of the Department of Urology. "The Men's Health Seminar Series shines the spotlight on these health issues and equips men with information to help them make informed decisions about their healthcare and treatment options."
