The Pancreas Center will be holding their annual Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day this year on Saturday, November 8th from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center.

“Awareness” is the appropriate name for this day. Yet, after attending several of these, a better title would be the annual Pancreatic Cancer “Hope” Day.

It’s undeniable that pancreatic cancer is a difficult disease. Yet in spite of this, the Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day generates the utmost levels of positive energy, support and hope. Attendees learn about new advances in pancreatic care from clinicians. Survivors share their experiences and gratitude to Dr. John Chabot and the Pancreas Center team for their second leases on life. It would be difficult to leave this celebration unmoved.

Jonas Salk the inventor of the polio vaccine, once said, “Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” This quote personifies the mission of the Pancreas Center and its team.

To register for this year’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day visit the registration page.

After the lectures and testimonials, there will be a vendor health fair, refreshments and an opportunity to speak with Pancreas Center clinicians in the Riverview Terrace.

If you need more information about the event contact Christine Rein at 212-304-7814 or through email at cmr2146@cumc.columbia.edu.
