I wanted to let you know about the date of the yearly GI Health gluten-free seminar this year.

Oct 17, 09 from 9-2 at the Marriott North in Cranberry Twp.... It is a free event with guest speakers: Jules SHepard & Connie Sarros plus others. Vendors also will be available for sampling & purchasing.

You must pre-register & it is limited to 300 attendees.

This is a good event for newbies. There is also a good support group for this area .. if anyone wants more info , let me know!

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately I will be away at that time. Is there a website with information about this annual event?

Do you know of doctors and/or nutritionists in the Pittsburgh area with special interest in Celiac disease?

Yes, Three Rivers Endo Group in Moon Twp & also Cranberry Twp. Dr. Stanley is good.412-262-1000. The nurse is a celiac.

Where are you located? The support group in Butler has people attending from S Hills,N.Hills & etc.

This is only the third seminar so it is fairly new...I'm a mentor for celiac in this area.

I'm from the other end of the state but here are my suggestions. Contact Abington Hospital & ask their referral service. Another hospital would be Paoli..... the last suggestions is contacting the CSA from that area (Philly) & asking them....

mamaw,

When is the next celiac support meeting? I really want to try to go. No guarantees that I can b/c this semester (I'm in school) is crazy for me, but I really want to try to go!!

Also, what are some topics that are discussed at the seminar? Or is there a website I can take a look at?

Thanks,

Hi Lady C

The seminar is OCt 17 (412-262-1000 )to register for that. Speakers are Connie Sarros from Ohio, Jules Shepard of Nearly Normal FLour, & a few others. Vendors about 23 total will also be available for sampling & selling their gluten-free goodies....

This is the only event in this area

Our Butler meetings are on hold at present ..... the church we use is being re-modeled so we have no other place to meet. We are staying in contact & doing the mini co-op gluten-free food ordering ......we just had a gluten-free dining experience with the group from Canton, ohio.

We are hoping the church will be finished so we can meet in Nov but I'm not sure ... it is not my church so I'll just have to play the waiting game! I should know for sure by end of October so check back at that time with me......

I fI can help you with anything just ask, you alos can pm me anytime.

Doctor Richard Raizman, in Monroeville, PA diagnosed me with Celiac Sprue back in 1986, before anyone had really heard of it. I attribute him to saving my life, without his knowledge of the disease, I have no doubt in my mind that I would have basically starved to death.
