OUCH! Pancreatitis and Chronic Pain: What Can I Do?

If you or a family member have chronic pain from pancreatitis, you won’t want to miss Mission: Cure’s webinar which will explore the impact of chronic pain on children, adults and families dealing with pancreatitis. “Chronic Pain and Pancreatitis” was selected as the topic for this next webinar in Mission: Cure’s ongoing Patient Education Webinar series based on input from patients and families who identified pain as their number one pancreatitis-related issue.
