NEXT EVENT

The Role of Family History in Pancreatic Cancer: What do you need to know?

Featuring Alison Klein, M.P.H., Ph.D. Director of the National Familial Pancreas Tumor Registry at Johns Hopkins

9/22/21 6 PM CT – Zoom & Facebook Live

While pancreatic cancer is rare, roughly 80% of pancreatic cancers are not diagnosed until they have spread. This is why pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths. Alison Klein, M.H.S, Ph.D., Director of National Familial Pancreas Tumor Registry at Johns Hopkins is working to change these statistics and determine options to stop the cancer.

Join us in a conversation with Alison where she’ll discuss the path to pancreatic cancer, including:

• Identifying key genetic clues
• Why tracking family history matters
• The difference between genetic and hereditary factors
• The importance of looking at lifestyle factors and high-risk populations
