Cedars-Sinai joined the Los Angeles Rams to raise awareness about men’s health issues, with a focus on colorectal and prostate cancers, on June 18 at Hollywood Park outside SoFi Stadium.
Dr. Zuri Murrell, a colorectal surgeon at Cedars-Sinai, and Dr. Edwin Posadas, co-director of the Precision Oncology Program at Cedars-Sinai Cancer and a prostate cancer specialist, hosted a free community conversation to inform the public about the two diseases. The discussion included prevention, symptoms and treatment options and took place at the Hollywood Park Summer Bash.
Following the community conversation, other Cedars-Sinai healthcare specialists were available for further questions and answers about men’s health. In addition, the Cedars-Sinai blood mobile unit was on hand for those wishing to donate blood.
