The Prostate Cancer Research Institute is a charitable not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of men’s lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community.
PCRI was founded in 1996 by internationally recognized prostate cancer oncologists Mark C. Scholz, MD and Stephen B. Strum, MD, with support from Daniel Freeman Hospital Foundation. Drs. Scholz’s and Strum’s vision was that: “an organization providing insightful clinical research in combination with high-level educational activities directed at both the patient and physician, would greatly enhance outcomes for prostate cancer patients everywhere”.
A patient who understands his disease and his treatment options is empowered to communicate more effectively with his physicians and will obtain a better outcome. PCRI provides uses many communications tools to accomplish this mission.
