The American Urological Association is meeting for their annual conference this week in San Francisco. If your in the area, come see me at the Bostwick Laboratories booth. I will be representing Prostate Cancer International with Mike Scott. The Bostwick thing is from them in support of PCai and in support of the "New" prostate Cancer InfoLink. David Bostwick is on the InfoLink Scientific Advisory Board for the InfoLink. In fact you can see the entire advisory board at this

The AUA conference will have several new announcements including the AUA position on active surveillance, and new screening guidelines issued by the ACS and other groups. Stay Tuned.

Conference details are available here at

If anyone is in SF next weekend...let's get together...
