HealthTronics and ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer Team up with Round Rock Express

June is Men’s Health Month, the time of year we see an increased awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease, including prostate cancer. It's a sad fact that every 20 minutes, another man dies from prostate cancer. That's more than 26,000 thousand lives this year -- enough to fill the Dell Diamond twice.

Men’s Health Month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

HealthTronics and ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer, teamed up with the Round Rock Express to help spread this awareness at a today's baseball game against the New Orleans Baby Cakes. We provided information about prostate cancer detection and treatment throughout the game through video and radio interviews. Folks from ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer, passed out vital information about the disease.

One of our employees, Janie Zamarron even threw out the first pitch!  

While the Express fell short of a win, we were able to help spread an important message and hopefully encouraged men, and the women who care about them, to arm themselves with this important knowledge about prostate cancer.
