Glutenfreeda On the Road: Greenbrier, West Virginia May 27th-29th, 2005



After a diagnosis of celiac disease, you may ask yourself if you are ever

going to eat out or travel again. The answer is "yes!" And what better

location to discuss this topic than our beautiful weekend setting. We will

practice how to pick the "safest" dining locations anywhere in the world,

and how to prepare ahead for travel by plane, car, cruise line, etc. We will

use real menus and role-plays to mimic dining out experiences. Listings of

portable gluten-free foods and resources for celiac-friendly vacation

packages will be provided.

*Please bring your questions and positive and negative dining experiences.

Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN, was diagnosed with celiac disease 14 years ago,

is a registered dietitian who sees patients with celiac disease and other

gastrointestinal disorders at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in

Boston. She is Nutrition Coordinator of the hospital's newly established

Celiac Center, and the founder and former chairperson and Nutrition Advisor

to the Healthy Villi Greater Boston Celiac/DH Support Group.

Reserve your space today for this rare, gluten-free experience at The

Greenbrier resort.
