GREENWICH, Conn. – The Retired Men's Association Of Greenwich Inc. will host “Prostate Cancer Screening: Pros and Cons” with Dr. James Rosoff at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the First Presbyterian Church, Greenwich.
The American Cancer Society recommends men have a chance to make an informed decision with their health care provider about whether to be screened for prostate cancer. The decision should be made after getting information about the uncertainties, risks and potential benefits of prostate cancer screening.
Rosoff, an assistant professor of urology at Yale Medical School, will provide more information about this problem that faces almost every man. Rosoff grew up in New Rochelle, N.Y. and attended Yale University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1997. He then went on to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer, teaching science for two years in the West African country of Benin. After the Peace Corps, he worked for three years as a science teacher in Boston. He then attended medical school at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York City, earning his medical degree in 2006.
He stayed at Cornell for his residency training, which he completed in 2012. From there, he went to Charleston for a fellowship in urologic oncology. He joined the Yale department of urology in July 2013 and is now based primarily in Greenwich, where he is attending urologist at Greenwich Hospital.
Rosoff's clinical focus is on the management of urologic cancers and minimally invasive surgery. His other interests include the treatment of male infertility, kidney stone disease and voiding dysfunction. His research interests include prostate cancer imaging, genetics of kidney cancer, treatment of male infertility, evaluation of minimally invasive surgical techniques as well as urologic illness in the global health arena.
The Retired Men's Association Of Greenwich offers a free program every Wednesday open to the public, both men and women; no reservations are required. The social break starts at 10:40 a.m., followed promptly by the speaker at 11 a.m. Programs are at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 W. Putnam Ave., Greenwich.
