LUGPA Launches Monthly Community Awareness Toolkits

This year, LUGPA is taking action to help our members expand the voices of independent urologists in their own communities nationwide. As part of this initiative, we will be promoting different awareness events or key policy priorities each month.

LUGPA will provide monthly toolkits to member practices focusing on these topics, including template press releases and sample social posts. This promotion will help to build the leadership of all independent member practices within their communities.


January: Medicare physician reimbursement

February: National Cancer Prevention Month

March: Kidney Cancer Awareness Month

April: National Minority Health Month  

May: Women’s Health Month.

June: Men’s Health Month 

July: Drug Pricing

August: Health Care Consolidation and Price Transparency 

September: Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

October: Reforms to Prior Authorization

What is Included in the Toolkits:

  • Press Release Template: This press release is a news item to increase awareness of a certain topic. The template includes spaces for your practice to add a quote from your leadership and additional information about your practice or community in relation to the monthly topic. The press release can then be published within any organizational materials, such as a newsletter, and/or shared with local press in your community.
  • Local Media Interview How-To: This resource includes an explanation of different kinds of local media, tips for working with reporters and preparation for media interviews.
  • Social Posts: To further expand the reach of your practice and spread awareness on these issues, you can adapt these posts about the monthly topic for use on your practice’s social channels.

Be sure to tag LUGPA in your posts, so we can engage on our social channels!
