Arkansas Urology this week announced the launch of its nonprofit Arkansas Urology Foundation.

The foundation’s mission is to promote awareness, encourage early detection and support state-of-the-art treatment of prostate cancer in Arkansas. 

It will focus on  providing free health screenings to men across the state; raising funds for other program needs; building a board; and promoting services provided across Arkansas on a daily basis. 

The free screenings will also provide medical staff insights into medical concerns, from diabetes to heart disease.

Arkansas Urology said the foundation would strengthen its ongoing commitment to increase access to urological care to underserved communities through the state. 

The foundation will be led by Chris Shenep, who will serve as its director.

“This is an exciting time of growth for Arkansas Urology across the state. We believe all men in Arkansas, regardless of cultural background, financial resources or proximity to care should have access to information, diagnosis and state of the art treatment,” said Shenep in a news release. “We have a lot of important priorities, business leaders who have signed up to help, and are excited to get the ball rolling.”

E. Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology, added, “This has been a longtime goal for Arkansas Urology. This role will oversee the marketing and fundraising initiatives for world class healthcare, right here in Arkansas. To have someone as skilled as Chris is vital. His experience with marketing and foundation work will benefit our patients and our staff as we build for the future.”
