Passionate about caring for others, United Urology affiliate physicians and staff support our community efforts by volunteering their time and talent to our community outreach programs. United Urology affiliates support our communities in several ways:
Funds raised through our Prostate Cancer Run/Walk events provide free prostate cancer screenings to high-risk men in communities where health disparities are prevalent and the need for medical services is great.
Ending prostate cancer is our signature cause. Our run/walk events bring staff, physicians, survivors, patients, families, runners, and the community together to raise funds and awareness. The $5,000,000 raised to date endowed two prostate cancer research scholarships, provided over 9,000 free screenings, and funded awareness and patient assistance programs.
Our experts serve as speakers for businesses, schools, church group, health fairs, and other for other opportunities to raise awareness of a variety of urological conditions, symptoms, treatments and preventive measures.
During the holiday season, we collect food, toys, and children’s pajamas for distribution to needy families and hospitalized children throughout the communities we serve.
Collectively our affiliates treat over 5,000 bladder cancer patients annually. The BCAN Walk to End Bladder Cancer is an annual, nationwide, 1-mile walk to raise awareness, recognize and celebrate survivors, and raise funds for research and patient assistance programs.
We appreciate the dedication soldiers make to keep our nation safe. Many of our physicians were former military service members and many of our employees have spouses, children or grandchildren actively serving in the military. Each May we take time to give back by collecting thank you cards, snacks, and personal hygiene items to show our pride and gratitude.
Founded by our Chairman, Dr. Sanford J. Siegel, in support of our signature cause – ending prostate cancer – prostate cancer run/walks are family-friendly events that take place during September’s prostate cancer awareness month. By bringing together survivors, families, medical personnel, runners and community members, United Urology’s events have raised over $5,000,000 for prostate cancer research, screenings, patient assistance programs, and awareness.
