The 5th Annual Stanford Celiac Conference is scheduled for Saturday,

October 30. Guest speakers include:

Advisory Board of the Celiac Sprue Research Foundation

Cynthia Kupper, RD, celiac disease, Executive Director, Gluten Intolerance Group

Danna Korn, author of "Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to

Raising Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Children" (published by Woodbine

House) and "Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy

Gluten-free Living" (published by Hay House)

The conference offers an excellent opportunity to get your questions

answered about diagnosing celiac disease, follow-up treatments, the

latest research, diet information, cooking and baking tips, and gluten

free lifestyle advice.

CME credits are offered for medical professionals. There will be an

expanded vendor section with book sales and a children's program.

We are considering an Octoberfest theme with gluten free beer!

We are currently looking for volunteers to help organize the conference.

Jobs include working prior to the conference (contacting vendors, planning

the children's program, choosing and working with the caterer, advertising,

doing the paperwork for CME credits, setting up the room and making gift

baskets, organizing all the volunteers), and also working the day of the

conference (registration, children's program, set-up, clean-up, helping with

catering of the gluten free baked goods). If you have a new idea for the

conference please volunteer your suggestions or better yet, your time to

help make it a successful event.

Conference information will be posted at http://celiacsupport.stanford.edu/

and mailed to everyone in late September. If you want to volunteer, please

contact Kelly Rohlfs.
