Atlanta Pancreas Cancer Conference

Atlanta Pancreas Cancer Conference 2022

Piedmont Atlanta Hospital - Shaheen Auditorium

November 5, 2022 | 7:45 am - 2:15 pm

About Our Conference

The 5th Annual Pancreas Cancer Conference will be held on November 5th, 2022 at the Shaheen Auditorium at Piedmont Hospital. This year, the event will be held entirely in person. The conference is open to patients, families, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, students and trainees to learn about the latest in pancreas cancer care and treatment from experts in the field.

As in previous years, we are excited to highlight our unique Survivor and Caregiver Forum for all those that have been or know someone who has been through a pancreatic cancer diagnosis and treatment. Patients and caregivers have the opportunity to keep up with pancreatic cancer news and also connect and grow their network and support group by connecting with others who have similar experiences and questions.

This year, based on feedback from prior conferences, we are proud to have new talks:

  • The role of the primary care physician and pancreas cancer
  • A translational science talk from our colleagues at TGen
  • An update on pancreas neuroendocrine tumors
  • The role of radiation
