    2019 Prostate Cancer Patient Conference Los Angeles, CA

    Do You Have Prostate Cancer?

    Have questions? We can help.

    Join The 2019 Prostate Cancer Patient Conference!

    Join hundreds of other prostate cancer patients and their families on September 6-8 for the 2019 Prostate Cancer Patient Conference and get face to face with prostate cancer experts in every field. Hosted at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, the PCRI conference is a full-featured educational experience for prostate cancer patients and caregivers. Each day consists of straightforward presentations, extended Q+A sessions, individualized small-group sessions, and a variety of fun and enriching activities to facilitate camaraderie. You can expect to gain a comprehensive knowledge of your disease and become empowered to make the best decisions for your life. Choose your strategy and win the fight!

    You can learn more by going to our conference page here and you can call us at 1-800-641-PCRI (7274) or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions. This year is going to be exciting; we will be having Vipul Patel, MD, FACS, who is a leader in the field of robotic surgery, and Laurence Klotz, MD, FRCS(C), who was instrumental in the development of Active Surveillance.

    We believe this conference will have a lot of valuable information (not just from the experts, but from other attendees too) so we are making it as affordable as we can to get as many people as we can.

    You can use coupon code "forum" to receive 50% off regular admission. That ends up being $30 per person for the entire weekend!

    Also, U.S. veterans can use the coupon code "vets" to receive free admission!

    Thank you for your time and we hope to see you there!

    NOTE: AcPatte contacted me privately before posting his above info because he did not want to violate forum rules. We felt it was okay to let him post it because it is basically an informational thing that might be of value to any of us who wish to attend this conference.
