Two New Abstract Awards
The Pancreas Club is pleased to announce two new awards beginning in 2009. The program committee will rate each oral presentation and the award recipients will be announced at the Sunday dinner event. In order to be eligible for either of these two awards, the work must be authored primarily by a resident or fellow and the presentation must be made by the resident or fellow. Presentation of the work by an attending faculty will not be considered for awards.
