16th Annual African-American Prostate Cancer Disparity Summit
The Prostate Health Education Network, Inc., (PHEN) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2003 by Thomas A. Farrington, a prostate cancer survivor and author of the books, "Battling the Killer Within", and "Battling The Killer Within and Winning". PHEN's mission is to eliminate the African American prostate cancer disparity. PHEN's mission also includes advocacy efforts to increase the overall support and resources for a war on prostate cancer that will lead to a cure for the disease for the benefit of all men.
This year's Summit is being presented virtually and is broken down into four sessions:
Session 1- National Town Hall Meeting: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Prostate Cancer Racial Disparity
Session II- Clinical Trials, Imported Studies and African-American Patients
Session Ill- Understanding Prostate Cancer Treatment Pathways and Empowering Patients
Session IV- The Importance of Community Outreach and Engagement on Eliminating the Prostate Cancer Disparity
Knowledge is the best defense against prostate cancer! These sessions will provide invaluable information for those currently combatting prostate cancer as well as those that wish to be prepared if prostate cancer unfortunately strikes.

Health and Wellness in a Time of Pandemic
Throughout the duration of this series which takes place on four successive Mondays at 7PM, we will contemplate approaches for claiming our health and wellness during this extraordinarily stressful time. We will focus on understanding our losses in this time of pandemic, our emotional response to these losses, and how we can begin to live through this time. We will look at the anxiety that we experience during a time like this, what causes it, and how we can handle it. Then as we consider how to survive this time of waiting, sometimes without clarity and answers, we will consider how God may be helping us grow as we experience this pandemic. And finally, we will begin to look at what God may be calling us to notice and embrace as we eventually begin to return to some new normal. During each session, we will have a time for sharing what we are experiencing.
Please register below right awav so that we can make the appropriate preparations!!! Once registered, you will receive an email containing the Zoom access links.

Robotics Club To Meet Online
The CUMC Robotics Club is continuing its support for students who want to improve their understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, also known as STEM subjects. Although our students and mentors continue to observe safe social distancing practices, we are able to meet online during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our students use robot kits and other electronics assemblies to complete STEM projects that are appropriate for their age, knowledge and skill. Through their projects, students develop important skills such as organizing and documenting their work, and making logical verbal presentations.
We will accept applications for additional students to participate in the Robotics Club. There is no cost to students and there are no requirements for their level of academic achievement. We accept beginning and advanced students who are willing to work in a way that puts our church-provided resources to good use.
To apply, please send an email to the church office or to Bill Pailen at email@example.com or call 301-606-8273.
