Us TOO International will present a free webcast on Sept. 29 aimed at providing prostate cancer patients and their partners suggestions on how to improve and maintain sexual intimacy.

Offered as part of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September, the live video and audio event will take place at Englewood Health in Englewood, New Jersey. Participation may be in person or online via a live webcast, and registration is required.

The webcast will give information on cancer testing and treatment. Sex after prostate cancer, however, will be the primary topic and will be addressed by an expert in the field, Anne Katz.

“Along with increasing awareness of prostate cancer overall throughout September, we are bringing attention to the fact that prostate cancer is often referred to as a ‘couple’s disease’ due to the impact of its side effects on intimacy,” Katz, a certified sexuality counselor and a clinical nurse specialist at CancerCare Manitoba, said in a press release.

“Our goal is to provide men and their partners with practical tips to get back on common ground, at a time when they need each other most,” she added.

The webcast is presented by Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Pathways Education and Support Network, a non-profit agency made up of volunteers who provide peer-to-peer support and educational materials to help men make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection, treatment, and to manage side effects.

The Sept. 29 educational event is part of a webcast series called Prostate Cancer Pathways for Patients and Caregivers. Each presentation features new information and perspectives from leading cancer doctors and healthcare experts. The series began with a June 23 event in Seattle and ends Nov. 3 in Chicago.

In addition to Katz, speakers at the presentation will include Stacy Loeb, an assistant professor of Urology and Population Health at the New York University School of Medicine; Charles G. Drake, director of Genitourinary Oncology and an associate director for clinical research at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center; and Mazyar Ghanaat, program director of Urologic Oncology at Englewood Health.

Sponsored by Janssen Oncology, the New Jersey event is hosted by Englewood Health in partnership with the Us TOO New Jersey and New York State Prostate Cancer Support Groups.

To register, visit here or call 877-978-7866. The event is from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (EST). Free lunch, along with an introduction to acupuncture and meditation, will be offered to pre-registered, in-person attendees.
