I’m happy to report to you some exciting news!
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, chaired by Congressman Edolphus Towns, will hold a hearing entitled: "Prostate Cancer: New Questions About Screening and Treatment" tomorrow, Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 10:00 am.
This is the first Congressional prostate cancer hearing in 11 years and, in the midst of debate on a health reform bill that will eliminate prostate cancer screenings currently available to millions of men in 37 states, this hearing is desperately needed.

A special thanks goes out to Thomas Farrington of the Prostate Health Education Network for his efforts in engaging this action.
