Enlarged Prostate to Be the Focus of Free CMHS Seminar on June 21

Ventura, California, 06/06/2016

Benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is 12 times more common than prostate cancer and affects more than 37 million American men, will be focus of a free seminar Community Memorial Health System is holding on Tuesday, June 21.

Marc Beaghler, M.D., who specializes in urology, will lead the seminar that will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium at Community Memorial Hospital, 147 N. Brent St.

BPH occurs when the prostate gland surrounding the male urethra becomes enlarged with advancing age and begins to obstruct the urinary system. Dr. Beaghler will discuss the causes and symptoms of BPH, the diagnosis and screening of the condition, and treatment options available.

Dr. Beaghler received his medical degree from the Creighton University School of Medicine, in Omaha, Neb., and completed his urology residency at Loma Linda University School of Medicine.  He is the CMH medical director of the operating room and a clinical professor of Urology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and a member of the American Urology Association.

Registration is free but reservations are required. Visit or call Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800/838-3006.
