NPF Online Communities
The National Pancreas Foundation – A Digital Community
NPF frequently talks to patients, caregivers and doctors who say that their main concern is a feeling of isolation. There is a lack of community and support for those involved and affected by pancreatic disease. We would love to be able to meet each patient personally, create a support group in every area, but this is just not possible. Social media provides us with the unique opportunity to create this community. Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and our newly launched website give us a digital platform to communicate with our patients, allow individuals to share their stories, receive support and provide physicians important resources. While we can’t be everywhere we hope this digital community will become a network of courage for all those affected by pancreatic disease.
We invite you to become part of our digital community!
