NIDDK and the NCI are co-sponsoring a 2 day workshop on June 12-13, 2013 to be held here on the NIH campus on the topic of Pancreatitis-Diabetes-Pancreatic Cancer. We have a faculty of 25 experts including several surgeons who will help us explore the relationships between chronic pancreatitis, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer. Included in the session topics are a discussion of the appropriate strategy to guide follow-up or resection in high-risk patients, and the criteria for making this decision.
