What is #AskTheExperts all about?
Ask the Experts webcasts are free events delivered online and presented as a Q&A style one hour program, hosted by a professional broadcaster. They have been designed as a live program that can be viewed by men, carers, families and health professionals from their own devices (such as computer, phone or tablet) or accessed on PCFA’s Online Community after the event. The discussion is guided by moderated questions that are submitted by the audience prior to and during the event.
Ask the Experts, Prostate Cancer: Diet, Supplements and Lifestyle, was broadcast in Men’s Health Week 2016. The webcast topics covered elements of a healthy lifestyle, including supplements and physical activity and explored how these can impact the management of prostate cancer across the cancer experience: from diagnosis to treatment through to survivorship.
