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.
When: Wednesday, May 16
Time: 9-10pm EDT (one hour)
Webinar/Telephone: Register and you will be provided a link to join the webinar. You can access via web browser, iPhone or by telephone.
While this event is free, CCA is a small national charity and relies on donations to continue to provide education, invest in research towards a cure and help Canadians with gluten intolerance improve their quality of life.
