World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2019
If You Only Have Time For a Few Things on WPCD...

Are you excited for Thursday? As a reminder, there is a minimum commitment for WPCC members to share a single post on World Pancreatic Cancer Day. See below for ideas, and if you can do more, please do! We wish you a successful WPCD 2019!

1. Promote and share the Alex Trebek Public Service Announcement (PSA) and the "Silent Symptoms" video, which is available in 14 languages

Note: Alex Trebek's PSA will also air during JEOPARDY! on Thursday, Nov. 21 (check local listings for showtimes and stations)

2. Engage with WPCD social media channels and content (like, share, RT, etc.)
  • Twitter/Instagram: @worldpancreatic
  • Facebook: @worldpancreaticcancerday
3. Promote and share the 2019 WPCD animated social graphics

4. Use the approved hashtags and tag WPCD:
  • #WPCD
  • #DemandBetter
  • #PancreaticCancer
  • #WorldPancreaticCancerDay
5. Send us your stories, photos, videos, and news: 6. Wear purple!
