Today, PanCAN president and CEO, Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA, and chair of our Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (SMAB), Diane Simeone, MD, were featured on The Oncology Show on Doctor Radio -- SiriusXM (Channel 110).
Doctor Radio is powered by the NYU Langone Medical Center, where Simeone now serves as director of the Pancreatic Cancer Center at the Perlmutter Cancer Center.
In addition to her role as chair for our SMAB, Simeone serves as chair of the steering committee of Precision PromiseSM, PanCAN’s groundbreaking initiative to dramatically improve outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer and advance our goal to double survival by 2020.
Throughout the SiriusXM interview, Fleshman urged pancreatic cancer patients to not be fearful of the disease. Instead, she encouraged patients and their loved ones to contact PanCAN Patient Services and visit pancan.org for resources and support. Our PanCAN Patient Services Case Managers speak with more patients and caregivers than any other pancreatic cancer organization in the world.
Before the interview closed, Simeone took a moment to thank PanCAN for their commitment and dedication to pancreatic cancer patients and the vital role the organization has played in the community.
