Levels of Participation and Site Requirements

There are many levels of participation that a site can choose;  from returning a report that requires just a few minutes of your time, to more involved levels where you complete additional information used for state-of-the-art research, national studies and national reports. The level of participation is always the site’s choice and can vary from year to year. All of the site categories are an integral part of PCAW as our most important goal is to provide free or low-cost screenings to as many men as possible.
