The Prostate Conditions Education Council (PCEC) was founded in 1989, and is a non-profit 501-3c organization. A national organization committed to men’s health, PCEC is the nation’s leading resource for information on prostate health. The PCEC is dedicated to saving lives through awareness and the education of men, the women in their lives, as well as the medical community about prostate cancer prevalence, the importance of early detection, and available treatment options, as well as other men’s health issues. The Council – comprised of a consortium of leading physicians, health educators, scientists and prostate cancer advocates – aims to conduct nation wide screenings for men and perform research that will aid in the detection and treatment of prostate conditions.
As the founder and coordinator of the national Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (PCAW) Program, along with our Screening Site Partners, we have screened nearly 5,000,000 men across the country for the disease and have become one of the largest and most successful health screening projects in the world.
PCEC is not only the national leader in providing prostate cancer screenings for men in all stages of the disease; PCEC is also the national leader in increasing awareness and education on prostate disease. Our education and awareness campaigns include a wide variety of forums and have expansive reach.
