The event, in partnership with Florida Hospital’s Global Robotics Institute, was held with efforts to promote research, educate men and encourage prostate cancer screening. Men and their spouses were invited to learn about men’s healthcare maintenance, basic screening practices and advanced nutritional and healthy lifestyle practices.
