KultURO is an event that combines urology with music and art. For eight years now, Krakow urologists have been trying to break the taboo related to urinary tract diseases for eight years now. Free consultations, urology hotline, health lessons at schools, an art competition and an extraordinary concert – tomorrow, September 24, starts the eighth edition of the KultURO Festival. An open-air concert will take place at 18.00 at the Forty Kleparz club. Admission is free.
Prof. Piotr Chłosta, head of the Department and Clinic of Urology at the University Hospital in Krakow, president of the Born-Healthy Foundation and the originator of the KultURO Festival, assures that it was not a coincidence that he focused on the cultural and health promotion of prophylaxis.
The KultURO Festival, organized by the Krakow-based UROdzeni-Zdrowi Foundation, is part of the international Urology Week campaign promoting urological prophylaxis.
– Because this form works, it is beyond doubt. (…) I am glad that it is in my city that diseases of urological origin are no longer a taboo subject. From year to year, I see more and more interest not only in our festival, but also in a much larger number of people signing up for preventive examinations. This fills me with optimism, because the sooner we detect the disease, the greater the chances of curing it – she emphasizes.
Some statistics: detecting prostate cancer at an early stage gives up to 90 percent. cure effectiveness! But because of this disease in Poland, still 15 people die every day! One in five Poles suffering from oncology struggles with prostate cancer.
