Retired Men’s Association hosts free talk, ‘Prostate Cancer Screening: Pros and Cons’

The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends that 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.

To screen or not to screen: this is not a simple question. Dr. Rosoff, an Assistant Professor of Urology at Yale Medical School, will provide more information about this problem that faces almost every man on Wednesday, April 13, at 10:40 a.m., at First Presbyterian Church, Lafayette Place, Greenwich.

Rosoff grew up in New Rochelle, NY and attended Yale University, earning 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.

James 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, James 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.

Dr. 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 Greenwich Retired Men’s Association offers a free program every Wednesday that is open to the public, both men and women; no reservations are required. Our social break starts at 10:40 a.m. followed promptly by our speaker at 11 a.m. Programs are at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 West Putnam in Greenwich.
