Thank you both for the information. I think I may just plan on attending both meetings since they do not conflict with each other, hey I need all the support I can get right now..... :rolleyes:

Karen, I hope you are feeling better and continue to do so :D and if you don't mind go ahead and send me the directions to the GW meeting too. Thank you!

Stacie and Ann,

The support meeting at Gwinnett Medical Center is this Sat. March 13th in the Educational department.

As far as I can tell the meeting starts at 10:00. It said if there is a pot luck it will start at 11:00.

But I don't see anywhere that is says pot luck. So I am going at 10:00. I hope you tow can make it.

I know it is a long way but I will try to give you directions. I tried to email the person for Cobb and they never emailed me back.

Take 75 South to 85 north. Then look for 316 toward lawrenceville and take it to the

exit that says Hwy 120. (There will probably be those blue hospital signs too). When you get off the ramp take a left

and you will see the entrance for the hospital (Gwinnett Medical Center) on your right. As soon as you go in the front door

there will be a foyer and I think the education part of the building is to the right. Not to sure but I am sure there will be

someone there to tell us. They do charge you for parking. Hope to see you guys there. Karen :D

Karen:

Yes they are usually held at the Gwinnett Medical Center but they have an opportunity to hear Cynthia Kupper, RD, celiac disease speak. The website has not been updated recently but the lady I spoke with assured me they were working on it and in the mean time if you email her and give her your mailing address they will send you the info on the meetings and pot luck. Her email is jmfierjr@aol.com (thanks Kim for posting it)

Did anyone ever get the info on the Cobb meetings?

Hey Stacie,

Thanks and I will email her. Not sure if I will make that one yet. I will let you know if

I go and tell you all about it. My husband has a swim team meeting at the same time

and so I don't think he can make it. Karen

Kim and Stacie,

I didn't get to go on Sat. I wasn't sure where it was being held and I don't know that part of town and I didn't want to get lost. So, I may come to the Cobb one in April.

Please send the information to me Kim. Did you go on Sat? IF so, how was it? I have never been to a group. Talk to you all later. Karen

Hi Karen. Sorry you couldn't make it. I was there and it was good. Dr. Rudert is speaking on Thursday March 25 from 12:30 to 1:30 pm in the Richard H. Rich Auditorium in the 77 Building of Piedmont Hospital. The lecture is open to the public and the topic is: The Medical and Nutritional Implications of Celiac Disease.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to make that one, but thought I'd pass along the information.

the April 24 meeting of the Cobb Group will be at PF Chang's near Perimeter Mall -- I'll get the time and address later and post when I have it.

Kim.

A new adult support group was started in Jan of this year. It is held in Cobb Co at a church on Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta. The contact person is Markee Jones at markee@mindspring.com.

On another note, a children's support group is being started. An informal get together is planned at Wills Park in Alpharetta, GA on Sunday, May 23, from 2 - 4. I am very excited about this because I have a 4 y/o son who was diagnosed 12/03. I can't wait for him to meet other kids in the same situation.

Hope all of this information helps.
