Pancreas Education and Research News Letter
What is it?
The Pancreas Education and Research News Letter (PEaRL) is a publication for patients and families who are in Dr Whitcomb’s research studies (for example, the 1000 patients in the NAPS2 study, or the hundreds of families in the Hereditary Pancreatitis study or the Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Gene-Environment Risk – PAGER study). It is designed to provide updates on research results, information for children (Kid’s Corner) and to answer clinical questions (Ask Dr Whitcomb).
