The Hirshberg Foundation is happy to announce Eden Brauer, PhD, RN will be joining us at the 18th Annual Symposium on Pancreatic Cancer to discuss Survivorship in Pancreatic Cancer.
This presentation will provide an overview of cancer survivorship and new trends and directions in cancer survivorship care. We will also discuss the unique physical, psychosocial, and spiritual aspects of survivorship experiences of patients and families in the context of pancreatic cancer, and how this can inform comprehensive supportive care.
