Mandel School’s David Miller explains the importance of Black men having access to prostate exams

One in six Black men will develop prostate cancer, but for some, preventative screenings are a cause for concern

EssenceDavid Miller, associate professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, explained the importance of Black men having access to prostate exams, as well as the anxiety men have about such screeniings. “What I have found out is you have to explain it to Black men, why their risk is higher, and the importance of checking on it. It’s about explaining what that means so that they can make an informed decision,” Miller said.
