Stakeholder participation is a key aspect of the NIH Consensus Development Program, and we encourage you to join us. The conference agenda is designed to facilitate productive discussion between speakers and attendees. Active participation in these discussions is the best way to ensure that the panel’s statement will be informed by all pertinent viewpoints on the topic.

Widely distributed to the medical community and covered by the news media, the conference statement will inform professional and patient decisions surrounding the role of active surveillance in the management of localized prostate cancer. We encourage you to use these tools to reach out to colleagues, professional membership societies, advocates, constituents, and inform them of the conference proceedings.
