Supporting the Community Through Outreach and Advocacy

Greater Boston Urology is a community-based organization that concentrates on one area of medicine: urology.

A large part of this focus is building awareness among patients and the public awareness about different urologic diseases and treatment options. Community outreach is critical to our mission. At the core of our outreach is support for local and national organizations committed to raising awareness and funds for treating certain urologic diseases, such as prostate cancer and bladder cancer.

Below, you can learn more about our involvement in the following:

In addition, our physicians often give talks and lectures within the community, at professional organizations, and other events.

If there is a urology-related cause that you would like GBU to get involved with, please contact us.
