I recently returned from a meeting of the Technology and Publications Committee of the Urology Care Foundation. This is the official foundation of the American Urological Association, which provides educational materials and other resources for patients.
One particularly impressive resource that our committee oversees is the patient magazine called Urology Health Extra. Here is a link to the current issue: http://www.
urologyhealth.org/patient- magazine/current-issue. It has timely information on urologic conditions reviewed by experts, presented in a reader-friendly format. I highly recommend this as an excellent resource for patients, and suggest that urology offices order free copies of this for their waiting rooms (http://www.urologyhealth.org/ educational-materials/ magazine-subscription-bulk).
In addition to these printed materials, our committee plans to expand the digital initiatives of the Urology Care Foundation. Stay tuned for much more on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest this coming year!
