At that time, Secretary Kerry’s served as US Senator and stated: “As many of your know, (prostate cancer) is a personal cause for me. It took the life of my father… but I was lucky to beat it… Special thanks to AdMeTech Foundation for organizing this event. Through Federal funding, they have been able to design and lead groundbreaking research programs in prostate cancer imaging. This is a great example of federal dollars at work to improve early detection while also reducing unnecessary procedures.”
