PDAC 2015 attendees invited to learn about prostate cancer and early detection

pdac_ron_portrait.jpgProstate Cancer Canada joined the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) and guests at PDAC 2015 to spread awareness about prostate cancer and the importance of getting screened.  On-site PSA testing was available, provided by LifeLabs.

Thank you to Mr. Ron Netolitzky

This exhibit has been generously provided by Ron Netolitzky.  Ron has been very successful in mining exploration with over 30 years of experience and having been directly associated with three major gold discoveries in Canada that have subsequently been put into production. He is a director of several publicly traded exploration companies. Ron was also recently inducted in 2015, to the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame.

Regarding this event, Ron said, "I am supporting this PSA testing initiative at the PDAC Convention because I believe that men in our industry need to know about early detection.  I encourage all men over 40 to get tested.  Early detection saves lives, especially when it comes to prostate cancer."
