WORLD PANCREATIC CANCER DAY, IN BOSTON AND STOCKHOLM
Each November, during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, people around the globe unite to highlight the need for greater awareness, funding, and research for pancreatic cancer. On World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD), we ask people to take action to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, the symptoms and risks of this disease, and the urgent need for earlier detection.
World Pancreatic Cancer Day took place on November 15, 2018. To honor this day, Immunovia, sponsored two different events, one in Boston (MA) USA and one in Stockholm Sweden.
