NEW YORK — Following the death of longtime “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek, many took to Google to learn more about pancreatic cancer, which he publicly battled for over a year.

Dr. Diane Simeone, the director of the NYU Pancreatic Cancer Center, joined the PIX11 Morning News Tuesday to answer those questions.
