Houston TX Celiac Support Group Meeting

Event details

The next meeting of the Houston Celiac Support Group is scheduled for

Sat., October 9, at 1 p.m. to 3:30. The meeting will be held in the

auditorium of Stage Stores Corporate Offices, 10201 South Main, about

1/4 mile from 610 South.

Our speaker will be Michelle Melin-Rogovin. Ms. Melin-Rogovin is the

Program Director for the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Program.

Her presentation is titled "Taming Temptation: Practical Strategies for

Maintaining a 100% Gluten-Free Diet". It shows us that there are no easy

answers, but that there are some surprising things that can be learned

from others who are also required to follow a strict diet for medical

reasons. Michelle will also be speaking in Texas in Dallas, Austin and

San Antonio this week.

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Program is dedicated to patient

care services, research activities, medical education, and public

awareness initiatives in order to increase the rate of celiac diagnoses

and improve the lives of celiac patients. The Celiac Disease Program

serves patients of all ages.

As Program Director, Michelle works with Dr. Guandalini, the Program's

Board of Directors and volunteers to advance initiatives in research,

medical education, patient services and public awareness. Ms.

Melin-Rogovin also fundraises for every aspect of the program's work and

coordinates media outreach activities.

We are so pleased to be able to host Ms. Melin-Rogovin.

Please bring a gluten free snack to share. It is important that included

with each snack is a listing of ingredients. Some of our members need to

avoid more than just gluten. If the recipe is either original or has

been changed at least 3 times, please bring the recipe. We can publish

these recipes in the recipe exchange section of our monthly newsletter.

Janet Rinehart, Chairman
