The David Samadi Challenge

Dr. Samadi urges all women to take the Samadi Challenge to get the men in their lives to commit to screening and prevention.

Men live an average of 5 years less than women. More men suffer and die from chronic illnesses than women. They’re 1.3 times more likely to have cancer than women and 2 times more likely to die from liver disease. The evidence is clear and the risk is high; men need to be more attentive to their health.

Statistics show that women make over 70% of the medical decisions in a household. Women are proactive and anticipate health issues and practice prevention. Research also shows that they ask a lot of questions of their doctor and want to make an informed decision regarding their health.

Women, join the #Samadichallenge to raise awareness for prostate cancer!
“Getting men to care about their health is a real issue and we know that women are vigilant when it comes to screening. We need them to motivate the men in their lives to have that same proactive attitude towards their health.” said Dr. Samadi.

The goal of the Samadi Challenge is to unite all women to:

–  Learn the risk factors of common diseases in men

–  Improve the lifestyles of the men in their lives

–  Encourage men to get screened annually

–  Seek treatment in case of a positive diagnosis

Women, join the #Samadichallenge to raise awareness for prostate cancer!
