Consider Supporting Pancreas 2000
Pancreas 2000's primary focus is on education, which is why we endeavor to keep costs to a minimum. Meetings take place in modest, but comfortable hotels that are easily accessible from nearby international airports. The faculty donates their time, and participants pay their own travel expenses to and from the meetings.
Nevertheless, Pancreas 2000 is dependent on donations to ensure that courses can continue and are adequately funded. Industry, scientific organizations, and professional associations are invited to invest in the future of Pancreatology by supporting Pancreas 2000 and the next generation of Pancreatologists. Please contact the Course Management to learn more.
