I am senior marketing student from Virginia Tech and am doing a project in my Marketing Society and the Public Interest class, and we are creating a Social Marketing campaign.  We decided to focus on Prostate cancer, more specifically men age 45 and older who suffer from this illness.
The reason I have come to this chat room is find out behaviors knowledge emotions concerns about individuals with prostate cancer.  If anyone would give me their feedback I would be very appreciative.  Also, the more we know, the more we are likely to create an effective campaign.
