The Prostate Cancer Community Partnership (PCCP) partnered with Siteman Cancer Center to provide free PSA testing and prostate cancer education at the annual 100 Black Men Prostate Cancer Walk and Community Health Day. During the event, 51 men were screened, of which 96% were African American.  The screening was facilitated by Danielle Rancilio and Dr. Bettina Drake with assistance from student volunteers from St. Louis University. Other PCCP members volunteered in a variety of ways. Raymond Marbury and Dr. Arnold Bullock were speakers for the Education Session of the Community Health Day providing a survivor and physician perspective. Pamela Rice and Patrice Greer volunteered as on-site nurses for the walkers. Dewey Helms and Dr. Leon Ashford provided prostate cancer education for men prior to screening.
