Prostate cancer – known also as the "silent killer" – is the second leading cause of cancer death among men. Every September, Joint Township Hospital joins healthcare providers around the country in sponsoring a local event to recognize Prostrate Cancer Awareness Month. A free educational and screening program, it annually attracts 200 men from the Auglaize County area.

Thursday, October 7th from 4:00-6:00PM
