Your Health Connection returns for another season on WCLK with a conversation about prostate cancer treatment options, coinciding with National Prostate Health Month. This live, interactive call in program is hosted by JaQuitta Williams, herself a cancer survivor. It is presented for the benefit of the community by the Center For Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University/CCRTD.

Prostate cancer kills African American men at disproportionately higher rates than the rest of the male population.  Host JaQuitta Williams was joined Wednesday September 17 and talked about it on Your Health Connection.  Our guests included Robert Carey, a prostate cancer survivor and board member of the Georgia Prostate Cancer Coalition, and Dr. Cimona Hinton, Associate Professor, Department of Biological Sciences and CCRTD Clark Atlanta University. They took listener calls and discussed the latest advances in treatment and diagnosis of this disease.

WCLK and our partners at the Center For Cancer Research and Therapeutic development are mourning the loss of our friend and  courageous advocate for prostate cancer awareness Ralph C. T. Franklin.  On Sunday, October 13, Franklin died from complications due to prostate cancer.  He was 62.  

Join WCLK this evening at 6pm or on demand here to hear Your Health Connection as we discuss prostate cancer.  September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  JaQuitta Williams is our host, and is a cancer survivor herself.  She's joined by Ralph C. T. Franklin, a prostate cancer survivor, and Dr. Walter Falconer, a urologist.  They'll take phone calls live and also take questions via Twitter @jaquittaw and @CCRTD.
