Program/Event
  • 7th Annual Pancreatic Cancer Symposium

    Pancreatic cancer is often caught too late for treatment to be most successful. That’s why there is an urgent need for early detection and awareness. Join us at the 7th Annual Pancreatic Cancer Symposium to learn about the latest in screening, treatment  and risk factors from experts who will offer advice on steps  people can take for early detection through advanced screening.

    Pancreatic cancer has a better chance to be caught early  by identifying certain risk factors and genetic traits. These include people with affected family members and relatives who have had pancreatic or other cancers, especially before age 50, and who carry gene mutations for other types of cancers. Could you have one of these unexpected risks? 

    Light refreshments will be served.
