On February 10th, I will be presenting Celiac Disease: Educating for Life to the Chester County Gluten Intolerance Group. This important topic covers the obstacles to prompt, successful diagnosis and treatment in the United States and the need for physician education to overcome these obstacles, reverse public frustration with the medical community and stop the shift of the public's focus from celiac disease and gluten sensitivity to the gluten-free diet fad.
