Respected Sir/Madam,

Greetings from Celiac Disease Society of India-Maharashtra chapter!

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.

Please do feel free to communicate and suggest regarding any query.

Hoping for long term symbiotic association.
