Webinar: Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and the Gluten-Free Diet

May 22, 2013

Celiac disease is one of the most common inherited disorders affecting 1% of the population. New research estimates that between 2-6% of individuals may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Medical nutrition therapy with a gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Health professionals need to be armed with the latest evidence-based and practical information to effectively meet the needs of this rapidly growing population.

In conjunction with National Celiac Disease Awareness Month, this webinar  will feature a review of symptoms, associated disorders, complications; serological and genetic testing; gluten-free diet guidelines; gluten-free labeling regulations; nutritional challenges; and practical resources.

Presented by international expert Shelley Case, RD and moderated by Becky Dorner, RD on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at 2 pm ET, this webinar is approved for one hour of continuing education credit.

Webinar sponsored by Bush's Best®, TH Foods Inc., and Daiya Foods.
