“The story of PSA screening has been controversial, it should not be controversial. This study shows that the trade offs of screening are really beneficial,” [Yoni] Shoag said. “We have a test that can save men’s lives and find their cancers early.” cnn.com/2022/05/17/hea… Retweeted by Erika Trapl

"There are many men who are not screened and because of that we’re seeing men diagnosed with more aggressive disease." @jeshoag & colleagues featured on @CNN re: their @NEJMEvidence study on harm-to-benefit of PSA screening in Black men. #ProstateCancer cnn.com/2022/05/17/hea… Retweeted by Erika Trapl

Excited to share our new work on PSA screening published @NEJMEvidence. Amazing multi institutional work with Roman Gulati, @yawnyame ,@DrSpratticus, @randy_vincejr, Pat Lewicki @Chris_Barbieri1, @erikatrapl, @jimhumd @jeshoag. @WCMUrology @AmerUrological evidence.nejm.org/doi/full/10.10… Retweeted by Erika Trapl

It's because of colleagues like @jeshoag that I have found a new passion for prostate cancer disparities and screening. Work like this provides even further support for our @caseccc #CAAPP to increase screening. twitter.com/CaseUrology/st…

Great work by @AllisonGlasser and team! Thanks to @NIDAnews for the supplement to our R01 that enabled Allison to explore this! twitter.com/prchn/status/1…

@KemiDoll @Eugenia_South @IssakaMD Love you Dr. @KemiDoll! ❤️ 👏🏾We must support research “with” not “on” communities! 👏🏾The community determines your impact—not a P-value! 👏🏾This type of work is NOT for everyone—authenticity and purpose are key! This is what #CBPR looks like ⤵️ Retweeted by Erika Trapl

Let’s hope it moves past proposed and into adoption and implementation soon! 🤞🏻 twitter.com/AP/status/1519…
