Virtual: Pancreatic Cancer Lecture
November 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. More than 62,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. Pancreatic cancer begins when abnormal cells in the pancreas grow out of control and form a tumor. Aaron Sasson, MD, Surgical Oncology Division Chief at Stony Brook Medicine, will discuss risk factors, prevention, strategies for early detection in people at high risk, surgical management and treatment options. If you, or someone you love, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, this overview and discussion will be valuable. Dr. Sasson will answer questions after the lecture.
