Columbia University Celiac Disease Center Roundtable Discussion June 7

by John Libonati on May 26th, 2010


This just in from the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University...

The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University will continue to host a Roundtable on Celiac Disease that deals with individuals and their families’ difficulties in living with celiac disease. The program will be held monthly and would deal with children, adolescence and adult issues with respect to celiac disease.

Members of the Celiac Disease Center who will be attending the Roundtable on Celiac Disease include adult and pediatric gastroenterologists as well as our nutritionist. We will conduct this program in an interactive format allowing airing of views and questions from all participants.

The next Roundtable on Celiac Disease will be held on Monday, June 7, 2010, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the Atchley Loeb Conference Room located in the Columbia University Medical Center. Adults with celiac disease are invited to attend. The doors will open at 5:40 and gluten-free snacks will be served.

While the issues that will be discussed will focus on the needs of the participants, we anticipate that discussions could involve difficulties with diagnosis, how should a celiac disease patient be followed medically, what dietetic nutritional issues are important, who should take vitamins, how to handle associated diseases and manifestations, how to control weight, what to tell teachers and guidance counselors about your child among other topics.

Attendance will be limited to 30 people so we would appreciate you letting us know if you can attend. If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to Cynthia Beckman. There is no charge to participate.

Atchley Loeb Conference Room Presbyterian Hospital Building 622 West 168th Street PH 8E-107 New York, NY 10032

    John,

    We have traded emails a few times in the past concerning GF oatmeal. I would very much like to try Isabelle’s pizzas and cookies. Problem being is that apparently they only sell the packages they put together on their site.

    I do not have a phone number for them. I did email them when I saw your message about the product. I asked them to send me a phone number so that I could order from them. No reply! I only want Cheese pizza, no sausage or etc.

    If you happen to have a phone contact you would care to share with me, I would appreciate it.

    Dennis
