Sometimes knowing you are not alone makes all the difference in the world. NPF sponsors its own online support group, as well as support groups near our office in Boston. We also host the Pancreatitis Group at CarePlace.com.
NPF Support Group
Our support group is an online email list that distributes information to patients and families. It provides a forum to patients and families for sharing ideas, advice, or bits of wisdom that helped them.
To join the NPF online support group or for more information, please submit your email address here.
The NPF does reserve the right to not send information that we feel could be detrimental to the group. Any information that is sent through this support group is not necessarily recommended by the NPF and has not been reviewed by our Scientific Advisory Board. This is meant to be a way of patients supporting patients. Your e-mail address will be kept private and will only be used to send you information from other support group members and from the NPF.

Just as we need health professionals to help us through illness, we are equally in need of the support and advice of family, friends – and most importantly – people who have really been there. CarePlace was founded to help people and their caregivers connect with one another, to share their experiences, concerns, passions, triumphs, and difficulties, and to support one another through trying times. The Pancreatitis Group at www.careplace.com is a warm, welcoming place to share stories and information.
