November 13, Dr. Ivor Hill, MD; Wake Forest School of Medicine, and Kathleen Sigler, RD; Novant Health and Diabetes Center, will speak on the topic, “Pancreas and Celiac Disease.” Dr. Hill keeps abreast of ongoing research on celiac disease. Kathleen Sigler is on the gluten-free diet and speaks from personal experience having celiac disease and diabetes. Both can assist us in knowing how to ask our physician about concerns on the health of our pancreas and the gluten-free diet.
We will meet at 10:30 AM at Hope Moravian Church, 2759 Hope Church Road, Winston-Salem, NC 27127, to set up our Healthy Choice, Delicious, Gluten-Free Holiday Potluck. NCPTGIG will provide ham & turkey. The program will begin at 11 AM. Bring 12 copies of your recipe and place beside your dish. Listing brand names is a big help for someone learning the gluten-free diet.
Please RSVP. Contact: Grace Johnston
