The 2014 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run / Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 11th at Tucson’s Reid Park Zoo – previously in December! Please see the below request from Dr. Belkoff for your partnership and support as we continue to make a difference for prostate cancer in Tucson. This year’s local proceeds will go to St. Elizebeth’s Health Clinic for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer and to the University of Arizona for prostate cancer research projects. We look forward to partnering with you!
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among American men and is the most commonly diagnosed with an estimated 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer expected in 2014. Here at Arizona Institute of Urology we have a commitment to our community – to save lives by creating awareness about prostate cancer; raising money for prostate cancer research and free local prostate cancer program; and to make a difference for those that are affected prostate cancer.
In our commitment to ending prostate cancer, we partnered with non-profit, ZERO-The End of Prostate Cancer, in 2011 to help in the fight to end prostate cancer. We are excited to announce that we have partnered with them again for our Fourth Annual Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk at Tucson’s Reid Park Zoo on Saturday, October 11th, 2014! With life-saving programs like this we have raised over $250,000, screened over 200 men locally, supported research efforts, and offered funding for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
We would like to extend an invitation to you to be our partner for this year’s 5K/10K Run/Walk and Fun Zoo Walk. Our other events have been wildly successful and we are excited to be making a difference for prostate cancer in our community. We have lofty goals for ending prostate cancer and we hope that we can count on your support! We are committed to this community event being special, successful, and fun for everyone!
Thank you for your support, Dr. Kenneth Belkoff

Last month the Arizona Daily Wildcat reported that the University of Arizona had been ranked among the nation’s most healthy campuses by greatest.com. It should be no surprise, then, that the university is teaming up with The Fox Theater to bring a new and informative lecture series on nutrition to the local community.Beginning this month, The Fox Theater will open up its doors to “Food”, the second installment of the annual U of A Downtown Lecture Series provided by the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences. Though not a traditional date night event that would normally be held in the theater, the lecture series should provide an offbeat opportunity to head downtown, and could even teach theatergoers a thing or two that may better their lives in the long term. In fact, this is exactly what the goals of the lecture series are. The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences aims not only to share new research from University faculty, but also to support the community’s investment in a vibrant city center by drawing commercial business to downtown merchants.The lectures will take place weekly on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m, with the first beginning on Oct. 15. The kick-off lecture is titled “Changing Geographies of Food”, and will be presented by Dr. Diana Liverman of the School of Geography and Development and Institute of the Environment. The lecture will explore how our food choices bring about changes to the planet, and will also look into the present state and geography of the global food system. The goal of this lecture is to trace trends and identify choices that promote a more sustainable future worldwide.The second lecture will be called “Tucson: City of Gastronomy, Hub for Food Diversity”, and will be presented by Dr. Gary Nabhan of the UofA Southwest Center. This lecture will take a local approach, highlighting the ways in which Tucson has become a model for re-diversifying the American diet.The third lecture will be called “We Eat What We Are” and will be given by Dr. Maribel Alvarez from the school of anthropology. Alvarez, who is also the director of Tucson Meet Yourself, intends to take a more anthropological approach to the food discussion, describing how our nutritional choices reflect our definition of our habits, our traditions, our practices, and ourselves.The fourth lecture will be “Edible Roman Empire” and will be led by Dr. Emma Blake of the U of A’s School of Anthropology Mass production, agribusiness, unsustainable harvests. Blake’s lecture will explore recent archaeological discoveries about the Roman Empire’s food practices, how they impacted the historical society, and what we can learn from this example.
