About this event
September is Urology Awareness Month.
Organised by The Urology Foundation, this month aims to raise awareness of urological disease as well as raise money to fund vital research and training into these diseases.
It is estimated that 1 in 2 of us will be affected by a urology condition in our lifetime. Our urology health is vital to our quality of life. But diseases and cancers of the kidneys, bladder, prostate and the male reproductive system are becoming more prevalent and devastating the lives of millions of men, women and children in the UK.
Through-out the month the focus is on raising awareness to breakdown stigma and encourage people to actively take care of their urology health. This is done by working with local communities and businesses to promote urology health, through health and wellbeing talks and providing information.
You can get involved in 2019 by helping raise awareness of urology health in your place of work or local community.
