The Atlanta Gluten-Free Dinner Club

We currently have 338 members and have held 84 meetups since October 2003

The purpose of this group is to share experience, strength, and laughter with other Celiacs while enjoying gluten free meals at area restaurants. Our dinners are lots of fun & a great way to learn tips and information about living gluten free! Sometimes our best resources are each other!

If you enjoy dining out and meeting new friends, then this group is for you! We are always looking for the best places to eat gluten free in the Atlanta area. We have more options now than ever before as restaurants learn how to accommodate a gluten free diet. The options for us grow every year! Things we thought we couldn’t have anymore (pizza, pasta, Asian cuisine, even fried food!) have once again become part of our diets.

A great resource is our Message Board where you can join in a discussion on a gluten free topic or ask a question.

University of Chicago Celiac Center Chooses “Recognizing Celiac Disease”

recognizing_celiac_disease_cover_lg1
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center has chosen Recognizing Celiac Disease as the supplemental reading material for medical professionals who complete its Preceptorship Program.

Dr. Stefano Guandalini, medical director of the center, recommends the book for both patients and healthcare providers. “The book is useful for prospective patients to determine whether their complaints are consistent with celiac disease. It is also an excellent patient resource for self management, especially in identifying ongoing and future health problems related to celiac disease and bringing them to the attention of their physician for proper treatment. “Recognizing Celiac Disease” is a useful reference that will serve as a helpful tool for health care providers and anyone diagnosed with the disease.”

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center’s Preceptorship Program is an on-site intensive 2-day training course for medical professionals. Candidates study under the direction of the Center’s celiac disease experts. The course includes formal instruction, as well as hands-on training. This is the nation’s only such program. More information about the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center and the Preceptorship Program can be found at www.celiacdisease.net.

“Recognizing Celiac Disease” is the definitive guide to understanding, diagnosing and managing celiac disease. It is a reader-friendly, celiac disease reference manual written for both medical professionals and the general public.
