Brian Urban, a health educator and case management specialist from Baldwin, Penn., has been named Cigna's (NYSE: CI) Volunteer of the Year for his work with the Obediah Cole Prostate Cancer Foundation in Pittsburgh, Penn.

Obediah Cole provides free prostate cancer screenings and promotes early detection, education, awareness and support for those with the disease. It also promotes healthy living, nutrition, and exercise.

Urban’s passion for the cause is rooted in the tragic loss of his father to prostate cancer in 2005, when his dad was just 55 years old. Brian Urban was 19 years old at the time.

“My dad was so young when he died, and his death could have been prevented. Through my work with Obediah Cole promoting early detection and prevention, I honor his legacy by helping others avoid losing their loved ones,” Urban said. “I’m grateful to Cigna for encouraging the spirit of volunteerism and supporting me in my efforts with the Cole Foundation.”

Urban, who serves as the organization’s Health Promotion Coordinator, was singled out for both his creative leadership and his effectiveness in bringing awareness and prostate health services to a wide variety of people within the Pittsburgh community.

“Brian’s valuable contributions to Obediah Cole help us offer free prostate cancer screenings to thousands of men,” said Jerry Livingston, vice president of Obediah Cole Prostate Cancer Foundation. “His contributions, energy, and ideas are critical to the success we have had. To me Brian is the future leadership of the organization.”
