    Topic: Therapy Awareness Program on Erectile Dysfunction

    The purpose of the Therapy Awareness Program is to provide information to healthcare professionals with the tools and education necessary to screen their patients for these conditions, provide treatment where appropriate, and understand when to send their patients to a specialist for a more comprehensive evaluation. The education provided through the Therapy Awareness Program will result in improved patient care.
