April 22, 2009, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Cleo Libonati, RN, BSN presented “Celiac Disease Today” to a group of medical students at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, PA.
Libonati’s presentation was attended by first, second and third year students who had many questions about celiac disease symptoms and how to identify at-risk patients.
“It was very encouraging to see such an intense level of interest in celiac disease,” Libonati said afterward. “Specifically, these students wanted to know how they as doctors will see it, how they test for it and educational materials they could give to people with it.”
Student antendees received a complimentary copy of Recognizing Celiac Disease. Special thanks to Daniel Van Riper, president of the Nutrition Group for the invitation to speak and coordinating the event.
“Recognizing Celiac Disease” is the acclaimed guide to recognizing, diagnosing and managing celiac disease. Recommended by medical experts and national celiac disease support organizations, it is used by healthcare providers and patients in 15 countries.
