WHO WE ARE: A unified voice for survivors is the goal of The Prostate Cancer Registry. Through sharing their experiences, we envision prostate cancer survivors working as one to build knowledge about the challenges faced by survivors. It is our hope that the findings from the Registry will provide support and ultimately empower survivors as they transition from active treatment to post-treatment.

What We Do: Through the Registry, we will be able to better monitor trends and changes in the epidemiological, emotional, and health status of prostate cancer survivors. A growing Registry has immense potential to increase public awareness, while helping develop effective programs to address the often misunderstood and under-served needs of minority prostate cancer survivors. 

How the Registry Works: The Registry—which is now open—works by filling a critical gap, providing a mechanism to learn directly from prostate cancer survivors about what issues they face. The more data the Registry obtains, the more we can learn about prostate cancer. And that’s where you come in. 

The Prostate Cancer Registry provides a unique opportunity for prostate cancer survivors to share their hard-won experiences for the benefit of others battling the disease, or those who may do battle with it in the future. This takes the form of a web-based registry developed by the Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD), at Clark Atlanta University. This registry is designed to gather information about prostate cancer survivors’ experiences and needs in order to fuel important research.
