Dr. Mark Moyad, Director of Complementary Medicine University of Michigan Urology, and Dr. Michael Lutz, president of the MIU Men's Health Foundation, join us during Men's Health Week.

Men's Health Week will culminate in the Eighth Annual MIU Run for the Ribbon on Father's Day, Sunday, June 19 at 8 a.m. at the Detroit Zoo in support of prostate cancer survivorship.

Prostate cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer found in American men, affecting one in seven, and is the second leading cause of cancer death for men, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). The ACS estimates nearly 181,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2016.

While more than 26,000 men will lose their fight with this disease, it is estimated nearly 3 million men are prostate cancer survivors, either diagnosed and treated or living with the disease.
