About the Urology Health Foundation: The Urology Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2003 by the Birmingham urologist Dr. Thomas E. Moody. A large part of the Foundation's work has been devoted to promoting public awareness about prostate cancer and to providing free prostate cancer screenings across the State of Alabama, especially in underserved areas that are at highest risk.
1 in 6 American men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime, and it is estimated that nearly 30,000 men in the U.S. will die from this disease in 2013. Alabama has the third highest death rate from prostate cancer in the nation, and for African-Americans in this State, the death rate due to prostate cancer is the highest in the nation.
Since 2007, the Urology Health Foundation has screened thousands of men free for prostate cancer in 18 different Alabama counties. In 2013 alone, the Foundation plans to hold free prostate cancer screenings in 13 Alabama counties. For more information, please visit www.UrologyHealthFoundation.org.
