Reaching Out
in the Community

One of our core values is to support and give back to our community. It’s why we created Reaching Out – our community outreach program.

Free Community Prostate Cancer Screenings

Since 2007, Chesapeake Urology’s partnership with African American churches has provided more than 8,000 free prostate cancer screenings to those in need throughout the greater Baltimore region. These screenings promote preventive care, create awareness in under-served populations and bring physicians into the communities.

All screenings include a PSA test and DRE exam along with educational information about risk factors and treatments of this deadly disease.

Prostate Cancer Support

Chesapeake Urology hosts a FREE support group forum for men to meet, share, and learn about their experiences with prostate cancer. Held quarterly, the support group meetings include a question and answer session, speakers on various topics relating to the prostate cancer journey and time to share individual experiences.

This support group is facilitated by our Chesapeake Urology Recovery Coach, Phil Shulka, who is also a prostate cancer survivor. Wives and significant others are welcome to attend.

For information on upcoming support group meetings, please contact Phil Shulka at

The Walk to End Bladder Cancer

Chesapeake Urology treats over 8,000 bladder cancer patients per year and began supporting the BCAN Walk to End Bladder Cancer in support of our patients and their families.

The Maryland walk will be held on May 11, 2019, and supports patients and survivors, increases awareness of a largely ignored cancer, and raises funds for a cure.
