Title: "Body Weight Status, Inflammation and Prognostic Markers in Early-Stage Prostate Cancer"

Speaker: Vince Freeman, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Epidemiology, IHRP Fellow

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for American men of all races, but its highest incidence occurs in African American men, who are more likely to die of this disease than any other group. Obese men with this cancer -- even those with small localized tumors -- are more likely to develop progressive or fatal forms of this disease. Dr. Freeman is leading a research team working to identifty the biological factors responsible for these poor outcomes. Learn more about this study at: http://www.ihrp.uic.edu/study/adiposity-and-outcomes-clinically-localized-prostate-cancer, funded by the National Cancer Institute, and attend this lecture to hear about their progress.
