Gluten Sensitivity & Celiac Forum

The only event of its kind…  this is where people come together to learn information about gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, speak to international experts in the field, and sample a variety of
gluten-free foods.

Let me tell you why we hold our annual Forum. One of the most common issues I run into with my patients is that they are not educated fully on gluten intolerance. This lack of education or understanding results in them making mistakes that cause serious repercussions on their health. Other times, the patient is a child and the lack of education on the part of their parent or parents is creating an adverse effect on their health. And still other times it is the relatives or friends of patients who themselves have a problem with gluten but who are choosing to ignore it, to the great concern of my patient who understands how serious the problem is.

So that’s why it’s important.  It is an opportunity to get educated, speak with experts from around the world, meet like-minded people and enjoy delicious gluten-free food from local vendors.

It is a rare opportunity, and is only held once a year– not to mention the fact that this Forum is the only one like it in all of California.

To top it off, 10% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, so that we can get to the bottom of the problem once and for all!  If increasing awareness about gluten and the effects it has on human health is something you want to support, then buy a ticket and come join us on Saturday, October 13th!

We look forward to seeing you, your friends and family there—and please forward this post and spread the word!
