Launching the AU Foundation

by Chris Shenep, Director of the Arkansas Urology Foundation & Marketing

“New Year…New You.” This seems to be said over and over this time of the year. Writing out thoughtful resolutions and making positive lifestyle changes is at the top of most people’s to-do list.

This kind of change applies to many people and in a variety of different ways. For me, it’s meant having the privilege to start a new job with Arkansas Urology (AU) as the Director of the AU Foundation and Marketing.

One of the many reasons I’m honored to join Scot Davis and such an outstanding team of physicians and staff is the fact that I’m the oldest grandson of Wilson Kell, a 97-year-old prostate cancer survivor. For as long as I can remember, he always said, “When, not if…” when it came to being diagnosed with prostate cancer. It runs in our family. So, when that day finally came, it’s because of proper treatment, follow-up, and care that my Grandad is now a prostate cancer survivor for more than 20 years.

As the state’s premier urology practice, AU provides comprehensive treatment services for men and women on a daily basis. We provide our patients with the most effective, state-of-the-art procedures in a compassionate atmosphere. And, I’m personally excited that one of the major initiatives of the AU Foundation will include FREE men’s health screenings for first-time patients.

To kick off 2020, we are excited to announce that we are now offering comprehensive healthcare for men at our new Men’s Health Clinic located on Bowman Road in Little Rock, along with locations on Medical Park Drive in Benton and Stockton Road in North Little Rock. And, yes, that includes the FREE health screenings for first-time patients. Make an appointment online today at

How will AU’s FREE Screenings Work?

We will be covering the costs of them through our fundraising efforts at the AU Foundation. With these screening, we won’t only test for prostate-related issues but have a full 10-point check-up for a variety of men’s health issues. The screening will include:

  • PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen)
  • Total Testosterone
  • Urinalysis
  • CBC (Complete Blood Count)
  • Hemoglobin A1c (Blood Sugar)
  • TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
  • Sexual Health Inventory
  • IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score)
  • Berlin Score (Sleep Study)
