PeCaN

PeCaN – Prostate Cancer Network

PeCaN was established in 2014 as a means to enhance and encourage collaboration between both clinicians and researchers dedicated to fighting prostate cancer within New South Wales. The network provides a means for easy communication between prostate cancer interest groups via two mechanisms:

  1. Providing an email list for distribution of local prostate cancer related news and events, and
  2. Eight seminars a year dedicated to learning about prostate cancer directed efforts happening throughout NSW, while providing a relaxed environment to enhance collaboration and interaction.
