Celiac Sprue Association Conference Oct 4-6th!


I am really excited to be moderating a panel on Gluten Free Blogging at 35th Annual Celiac Sprue Association on October 4-6thon Long Island in Hauppauge, NY. There will be great sessions on the latest and greatest from the Columbia Celiac Center, dietary tips, gluten-sensitivity, and panels on gluten-free baking, travel, and dining out. There will even be a clam bake, wine tasting, tours and more!

And the session will focus on how gluten-free blogging can benefit EVERYONE—well, anyone with a computer. Blogging is a great way to connect and share ideas, get information and support and be dazzled by the recipes and pictures! This virtual community is a fantastic resource for anyone with Celiac or on a gluten-free diet.  So whether you’re a blogger, want to start a blog or you simply enjoy finding more about news, products and getting great recipes,

We’d love to have you join us! Registration info here. The discounted member rate is for anyone who is a member of ANY of the Celiac organizations, not just CSA.

I’m even more excited about the bloggers who will be joining me on the panel, because all are wonderful examples of thriving on a gluten-free diet and helping others do the same. They are also warm, knowledgeable bloggers and I know it will be a great panel!
