Serving Those in Our Communities

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:

  • Prostate cancer programs including free screenings, community awareness and education, as well as, funding for research.
  • Free community education programs throughout the year.
  • Scholarships for students earning a degree in health care.
  • Employee engagement –Our employees have donated over 30,000 hours of volunteer time through various company-sponsored community initiatives.
  • In Maryland, Chesapeake Urology founded the, now national, ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk event, a 5K and 10K footrace, which has raised more than $5,000,000 for prostate cancer research, awareness, patient assistance programs and provided more than 8,000 prostate cancer screenings to high risk men in need.

“The Community Outreach program is what helps make this a great company.  It’s easy to make a donation, but a company that actively engages with the communities it serves speaks volumes; this shows a long-term commitment to help those in need. As a Chesapeake Urology employee, I feel a dedication to take an active role in our community outreach program.”

Free prostate cancer screenings

Free Screenings

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.

Prostate Cancer Run/Walk

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.

Community education

Community Education

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.

Holiday Drives

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.

BCAN walk

Bladder Cancer Walk

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.

Support the Troops

Support the Troops

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.
