Churches have hosted PHEN’s Annual Father’s Day Rally, Educational Symposiums, and this year PHEN has further expanded its outreach efforts with "Daddy's Boys," an entertaining stage play that is wildly acclaimed by audiences for its creative approach in educating both men and women. "Our faith-based initiatives have proven to be highly effective in supporting the educational needs of our communities.

However, we are finding a growing call for even more prostate health knowledge and we aim to respond to this need," says Thomas Farrington, PHEN Founder and President.

PHEN will launch a "Social Media Initiative" in response to these growing needs at its 14th Annual African American Prostate Cancer Disparity Summit in Washington, DC on September 13th and 14th. Findings from PHEN’s faith-based outreach efforts over the years will also be presented.

"The Social Media Initiative will bring our church partners together online monthly with programming streamed from PHEN meetings and educational presentations that we have successfully hosted at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA since 2011," states Rev. Adrian Backus, PHEN's Director of Outreach and Partnerships. "We see enormous potential for churches across the country to collaborate with PHEN online to further educate their communities, and to take an active lead with us collectively in the fight against prostate cancer," Backus says. A number of churches will join PHEN in the launch of the Social Media Initiative by streaming the summit program live. PHEN invites all churches to tune into the summit program, and to join the Social Media Initiative to help eliminate the prostate cancer crisis within their communities. There are no costs for churches to participate... more information.

PHEN's two-day Summit will be hosted at the U. S. Capitol Building on Thurs, September 13th and at the Washington Convention Center as part of the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference on Friday, September 14th. Both sessions are free and open to the public.
