Event description

Description

The Hirshberg Foundation's Annual Symposium on Pancreatic Cancer, held at UCLA, was designed to showcase advances in research, treatment options and early detection. The aim of the symposium is to create an intimate and inspirational patient centered program by bringing together survivors and their families, clinicians, researchers and physicians. In the past, topics have included oncology, surgery, psychosocial management, nutrition and integrative medicines, gastroenterology, genetics and basic science.

A highlight of the program will be hearing from our Survivor and Caregiver panelists who will share their journey from diagnosis to present day.

There is no fee for attending this event.
