Celiac Disease Society of India-Maharashtra Chapter CME and Public Awareness Program

In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

We have recently started Celiac Disease Society of India-Maharashtra chapter in Central India. Prevalance of CELIAC IN Northern India is well know . Unfortunately we have no data from central India. We have started Central India Celiac Disease Registry.
In JULY 2011 we are planning to have CME with public awareness program for celiac disease.This would be first monothematic CME in CENTRAL India WITH emphasis on celiac disease for genral public as well as pediatricians and clinicians.
We face same problems as availability of gluten free products, their standards, gluten free medications, low awareness even among physicians about this condition.
We would like to request you to contribute academically AND for management of this venture. Combined venture of CDSI-Maharashtra chapter &YOUR'S organisation over a larger scale as International forum would be sincerely appreciated BY ALL and impact value for work in celiac HERE IN CENTRAL INDIA would move forward in a right direction.
