"I don't want to see another man die because he has no money for adequate healthcare."

Curtis D. Robinson
Founder and Board Member
The Men's Health Institute

The American Cancer Society states that African-American men are more likely to get prostate cancer than Caucasian men, and have a nearly two-fold mortality rate when compared with Caucasian men.* To help correct this health disparity, Saint Francis has partnered with more than 30 faith-based and community organizations to develop The Men's Health Institute. 

Our goals are patient education, early detection, appropriate treatment, access to the most advanced treatment options, and continued support for men at risk. To meet these goals, we provide the following:

  • Private prostate cancer testing and screening 

  • Referral, as needed, to Saint Francis physicians for further examination and treatment, and access to all available treatment options 

  • Monthly prostate cancer support group meetings with featured speakers and related topics 

  • Financial assistance for prostate cancer care and treatment, according to Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center guidelines.
