Talking about prostate health at NP conference tomorrow

No rest for the weary.
After just coming back from the ACPE Annual Meeting in San Francisco, I have a talk about prostate health at the 19th Annual Northeast Regional Nurse Practitioner Conference tomorrow afternoon (5/3 at 2:30pm).

Here's a brief on the talk from the conference brochure:

Ronald Yap, MD

The issues and recommendations related to this topic continue to evolve.
During this session, we will discuss two common issues affecting the aging male:
prostate enlargement (BPH) and prostate cancer screening. We will review current national guidelines. Up to date research, management options and controversies will be discussed."

It will be a jam packed talk.  Last year, I talked about BPH alone and took up the entire time.
Given the recent stories regarding screening involving Warren Buffett's prostate cancer, USPSTF guidelines, and evolving clinical studies, adding the prostate cancer screening part will hopefully clear up some confusion about this issue. 

I have the talk as a .ppt file and have thought about putting some videos up with my lecture material on You Tube at some point in the future.  If this is something you'd like to see please comment.
