Please join the Center for Cancer Risk Assessment (CCRA) for a free conference for patients and families to learn about the most recent updates in hereditary cancer risk assessment for pancreatic cancer.

We will discuss screening, prevention, medical management and treatment options for those with gene mutations or those at hereditary risk for pancreatic cancer.
