Free Prostate Cancer Screenings Presented by Veradigm

Blog Posts  |  26 April 2023

Veradigm is proud to continue our work in advancing health equity by announcing our new sponsorship of Zero Prostate Cancer to support free cancer screening events across the country.

ZERO Prostate Cancer is working to end prostate cancer for all. The organization brings comprehensive cancer support to those in need, including prevention education, early detection screening, financial aid, and emotional support programs.

According to ZERO Prostate Cancer, prostate cancer usually has no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage. Unfortunately, due to many racial disparities in healthcare, Black men are 1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 2.1 times more likely to die. Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in Black men in the United States. However, the 5-year survival rate is nearly 100% if detected early. Access to testing is crucial to increasing survival chances across all demographics.

Veradigm is excited to support ZERO Prostate Cancer in offering free screening tests at five upcoming 5K run/walk events happening in major cities across the country. The screenings are a simple prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test done in partnership with local clinics within each city. We hope that the opportunity to obtain a free screening will help more people with limited healthcare access receive potentially life-saving resources.

We invite all who are in the host cities to attend, support and share the June, September and October events that are offered in partnership with Veradigm and the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series:
