(O’FALLON, IL) HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital is hosting a free educational health presentation, Health Connections, on Tuesday, November 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the boardroom of the hospital. Lunch and refreshments will be provided but seats are limited so RSVPs are required. 
 
The topic for this session is “Men’s Prostate Health” presented by William Critchlow, MD, a urologist with Urology of St. Louis and on the medical staff at HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.
 
The public is invited to learn about warning signs, symptoms and treatment options for an enlarged prostate at this recently introduced educational presentation series.
 
By age 60, half of all men will have an enlarged prostate, a condition also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. BPH is not prostate cancer. It’s a common condition for which there are many treatment options, from surgery to lifestyle changes.
