Spring Has Sprung!

 

Hi folks ---
Welcome to the March issue of CPDR e-News!

 

I’m reluctant to say it’s the spring issue. It may be the spring issue or it could be the winter issue. Clearly, Mother Nature has some “issues” this year!! (menopausal perhaps??)

 

Here is what is happening at the Prostate Center.
