Program Details

We invite you to share your own personal stories about the urologic heroes in your life. Here's how the AUA's Hometown Heroes works.

Step 1: Upload Your Story
The first step is to upload your story. We also encourage you to include photos, videos and audio files when possible. Click here to upload your file(s).

Step 2: Your Story is Reviewed
A staff member of the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History will review your story and prepare it for online publication. If the honoree is living, the AUA will contact the honoree to obtain permission for publication. The honoree will also be mailed a Hometown Hero certificate to commemorate their honor.

Step 3: You will Receive a Request for Donation
The AUA will mail you a request for $100 tax deductible donation to the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History. This donation helps the AUA and the Didusch Center preserve the rich history of urology by covering the costs of organizing, processing and maintaining the Hometown Heroes site.

If you are adding a personal narrative to an existing submission, you will receive a donation request for $50.

Step 4: Your Story is Published
Once the AUA reviews your story and receives your donation, your story will be published at www.urologichistory.museum/hometownheroes.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Tupper Stevens, Museum and Archives Specialist, at tstevens@AUAnet.org.
