EPC Leadership

The EPC Council is a group of dedicated and enthusiastic individuals who have a passion for the pancreas. They are also eager to serve their colleagues, and they work hard to further develop and build the EPC.

The Council members serve a set term that varies by office, as laid out in the EPC statutes. Any active EPC member may apply to become an EPC Council member as long as certain requirements are met.

Calls to fill open positions are announced well in advance of the EPC General Assembly meeting.
