Later in the month, in observance of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Trinitas will host a program of interest to both men and women. On Monday, September 22, 5:30–7pm, urologist Dr. Brett Opell will present "What Every Man Should Know about Prostate Health." This program, again free of charge, will also take place at the Trinitas Center of Regional Education (CORE) located at 1164 Elizabeth Ave., Elizabeth, NJ. A light dinner is also included. Those interested are urged to call 908-994–4MEN (4636) to register.

In October, a second seminar relating to men's health concerns will take place on Tuesday, October 7, 5:30-7:30pm.

"Trinitas has been pro-active in its community education efforts, from health fairs and health screenings, to making speakers available for community events," notes Joe McTernan, Senior Director of Community and Clinical Services, at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. "These seminars planned for September and October are key examples of Trinitas outreach that offers the community valuable health and medical information directly from our physicians."
