Overview

May 16 is International Celiac Awareness Day. Throughout the month, the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) is featuring webinars to help people become more aware of the disease. To learn about other events or the CCA, visit www.celiac.ca.

Join us for a one-hour free webinar on children and celiac disease. 

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that can strike any at age for people at risk. It can be particularly hard on children and it can impact the entire body. Thankfully, once diagnosed and following a strict gluten-free diet, most children can return to normal health.

CCA Professional Advisory Council member and pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Dominica Gidrewciz, will review the classic and lesser known signs and symptoms of celiac disease most often seen in children. 

Registered dietitian, Jessica Wu will share how to maintain and improve your child's health after diagnosis.
