To educate and support patients and survivors and help men and women cope with prostate and other cancers or illnesses, Rabbi Ed Weinsberg speaks at events across the U.S. and Canada. See the schedule below for details.
Rabbi Ed addresses the need for cancer screening and describes how men and women already affected by prostate and other cancers can rekindle their romance and hasten recovery through humor and faith. His comments are based on his multiple-award winning books, Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Medicine, Faith, Love and Sex Can Renew Your Life, and Reigniting Intimacy and Sexuality after You're Ill. He writes and speaks from his perspective as a prostate cancer survivor, gerontologist, patient healthcare educator, and intimacy coach who is a certified sexuality counselor.
