Event Details
3RD ANNUAL Patient and Family Centered Care For PANCREATIC DISEASES

The National Pancreas Foundation and Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan  presents a patient-centered educational event. 

"3RD ANNUAL Patient and Family Centered Care For PANCREATIC DISEASES"

  

The main goals are to increase understanding of how pancreatitis and pancreatic surgery decrease pancreatic function and impair nutrition; what resources and treatments are available for patients to improve/maintain nutrition; who is a risk for developing pancreatic cancer; and how care for pancreatic cancer involves a personalized medical and surgical approach. Experts from the Michigan Medicine/University of Michigan and the NPF will be on hand to share important information and answer your questions about pancreatitis, nutrition and pancreatic cancer. We will also discuss updates and resources available at the National Pancreas Foundation (the NPF) national office, the local chapter and the approved centers in Michigan.
