prostatepedia magazine covers


Prostatepedia features informal conversations with doctors, patients, and activists about prostate cancer. Each month they tackle a different topic facing prostate cancer patients today—from how imaging has impacted treatment to dealing with erectile dysfunction after radiation or surgery to the evolving field of immunotherapy.

Prostatepedia Magazine (quarterly) and the weekly Prostatepedia Digests became part of NASPCC starting with the August 2020 issue.

October 18, 2019 – October 20, 2019
Hotel Monaco, Washington, D.C.

“Educate, Participate, Celebrate”

The 15th Annual Meeting & Gala of the National Alliance of State Prostate Cancer Coalitions, also known as The Prostate Cancer Alliance, was held at the esteemed Hotel Monaco in Washington, D.C. on the site of the original General Post Office Building (circa 1840), from Friday, October 18, 2019 through 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 20, 2019.

This was a celebratory Annual Meeting, as it was a landmark year – our 15th year of helping prostate cancer patients and their families. State prostate cancer organizations – coalitions, foundations, associations and other entities - from across the entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, sent at least one, sometimes two or three representatives to the 15th Annual Meeting.

The expectation as always was that at the conclusion of the Annual Meeting, all attendees would return to their respective constituencies and then disseminate throughout their states, all of the educational, scientific and practical information they’d received, thereby helping patients everywhere. 

Annual Meeting Sponsors sent representatives to the 15th Annual Meeting & Gala to learn, to network and to work with state prostate cancer organizations, as well as to distribute their materials. There were a record 16 sponsors for this year’s event, and NASPCC is very grateful for their support which helped us to organize and hold this stellar Annual Meeting.
