The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to compare spiritually based and non-spiritually based educational interventions used with African American men to make informed decisions about prostate cancer screening. Researchers found that the spiritually based intervention appeared to be more effective in areas such as knowledge, and that men in the spiritually based group read more than those in the non-spiritual group.
