Update from Grace Johnston on the rescheduling of the next NCPTGIG meeting:
Dr. Ivor Hill has a conflict with April 16. Our advisory committee voted last night to reschedule. Dr. Hill will bring Dr. Marcie K. Drury Brown, a pediatric endocrinologist who has celiac disease, to our next meeting. We are amending the topic to include recommended follow-up care for celiac disease and wheat sensitivity and other autoimmune issues, symptoms, to be aware of. Once their July schedules are posted we will set a date. This will be worth waiting for.
Continue to compile your tips for navigating the gluten-free diet, how you deal with the social and psychological issues following the diet. Within our group is a wealth of information, the correct information, and yes, the material for the next addendum. Please continue to share your talent.
Look forward also to great gluten-free potlucks!
Also, (1) cooking demonstrations with our kids
(2) fun family exercises and games
(3)samples from gluten-free vendors
(4) 28 day gluten-free menu for our kids
(5) a gluten-free dining event at New Town Bistro
(6) program meeting with Dr. Jillian Teta
I am particularly concerned that we continue to be available to those newly diagnosed. I thank you for the outreach effort you are making and I encourage everyone to continue to communicate by asking questions and sharing information.
