Join our first Campaigns Community event
29th September 2021, 18.00 - 19.30 via Zoom
Thank you for being part of a growing movement of people campaigning for change for people with pancreatic cancer.
Together we’ve campaigned to keep treatment going during the pandemic, for faster diagnosis and access to essential treatment. Now, we’re ready to embark on our most ambitious plan yet to transform the future of diagnosis and treatment for people with pancreatic cancer.
We’re beginning to build a brand-new community of campaigners to help shape and deliver our plans – and we’d love you to join us.
Be among the first to join and help shape our new Campaigns Community at our virtual event on Wednesday 29 September 18:00 – 19:30 via Zoom.
You will have the opportunity to:
- Meet the Pancreatic Cancer UK Policy and Campaigns team
- Hear about our plans to transform diagnosis and treatment
- Discover upcoming opportunities to get involved
- Share your experiences, and views on what issues we should be focusing on
- Hear from people affected by pancreatic cancer who are influencing decision makers
