        PHEN launched its "Clinical Trials Rally" in January 2017 to increase the number of African American men participating in prostate cancer clinical trails. The first phase is to raise the level of knowledge and awareness about clinical trials through PHEN's monthly webcasts, educational symposiums, and the clinical trials web-portal. This session will provide an update on the results of these activities and explore next steps and strategies with industry and government partners.

        2:40 PM – 4:00 PM: The Treatment Cost Factor and Its Impact

        Cancer patients are three times more likely to declare bankruptcy than people without cancer according to reports. The newer prostate cancer treatments are costly and a recent study showed that black men considered the cost of prostate cancer treatment to be very important by a margin of 2 to 1 compared to white men. This session will focus on how the cost of treatments is impacting access by African American men and explore what actions can be taken.
