The University of Michigan and the National Pancreas Foundation Michigan Chapter will jointly host a second Patient and Family Centered Care for Pancreatic Diseases educational event.

The main goals are to increase understanding of the immediate and long-term impact of pancreatitis on health, ability to function and work and medical coverage; to discuss the approach to complex care and to highlight causes and the approaches to chronic pain. We will also discuss updates and resources available at the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF) National Office, the NPF Michigan Chapter and the University of Michigan NPF center of excellence.
