Celiac Presentation In Sandy, Utah
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi there :) I am doing a presentation on Celiac Disease at the Good Earth Natural Foods store in Sandy on Monday night. I know this forum was so much help to me when I was first diagnosed (and still is when I have questions) and I thought I would announce this here. Hopefully, I will be able to add to your understanding. (Which I know is vast if you spend much time here ;) )

I'm currently a student at the University of Utah who is studying Health Promotion & Education. I'm also someone with Celiac Disease who has a mad fascination with it ;) I've read at least 50 peer reviewed medical journal articles on the topic, read many books, done numerous presentations on the disease (in my classes) and have learned a lot of medical information about our disease and what happens - or how likely things are to happen.

Oh, and I know this is going to be at a natural foods store, but I promise not to tell you to eat spelt ;)

I hope that someone from this forum will come! :)

Here is my little anouncement :

* Living Well with Celiac Disease!

On Monday, November 27th at 7:00 pm, Michelle Larsen (University of Utah Health Educator and a woman with Celiac Disease) will offer a presentation on the gluten-free life. The meeting will take place at the Good Earth at 7905 South and 700 East, in Sandy.

We will discuss:

- Gluten-free supplements & medications

- Complications of Celiac Disease (Neurological, Autoimmune, Osteoporosis, Dermatitis

Herpetiformis, Emotional, etc.)

- The Genetic Component of Celiac disease

- How gluten affects your intestinal tract

- Prevalence of Celiac disease

- Food!

Please come! Bring your family and your insight!

I think it's really neat that you're doing a presentation of celiac. Utah is a little too far for me to go to the presentation. Maybe you could post your slides or outline or whatever you're using. I bet it would be really helpful for newbies. Good luck!

Thanks for your encouragement! :) I need to get more involved in this board again. I miss having all of these great people to talk to who actually know what I'm talking about ;)

Once this semester is over (mid December) I'll come back to the board more often and try and make myself useful ;) I really have learned so much about celiac. It's kind of wild for an OCD person like myself to have (nearly) full access to medical journals. But hey, at least I'm learning! ;)

Just hope someone comes to the presentation!
