Dr. Alessio Fasano, Director of the Center for Celiac Research, presents a special seminar on the history of celiac disease at the University of Maryland Celiac Disease and the Gluten Free Diet: From the Banana Diet to No Diet ?
Please take time to watch this video on YouTube. It lasts around 86 minutes. It’s a very informative talk about celiac disease entitled, ”What You Need to Know about Celiac Disease and the Gluten-Free Diet.” It was posted December 20, 2007 so occasionally they mention that something is going to happen “next year” ...specifically announcements by the FDA about labeling gluten free. That will happen in August of this year. Come hear Andrea Levario of the American Celiac Disease Alliance speak about this at the June 6-7 Conference here in our area.
It’s presented by the WilliamK.WarrenMedicalResearchCenter for Celiac Disease at the University of California,San Diego http://celiaccenter.ucsd.edu. Featured speakers are Dr. Martin F. Kagnoff, Director of the Wm. K. Warren Medical ResearchCenter for Celiac Disease, Professor of Medicine & Pediatrics, UCSD School of Medicine, Dr. Gregory Harmon, UCSDCenter for Celiac Disease Gastroenterologist and Dr. Susan Algert, PhD, Registered Dietician, ResearchCenter for Celiac Disease, UCSD Department of Medicine. It’s 86 minutes of your time very well spent. Dr. Algert references the Gluten Intolerance Group’s program ”Gluten Free Certification Organization GFCO” in her talk when she speaks about testing companies for gluten in their products. Very nice reference to our home organization! She also mentions Shelley Case’s book as a wonderful reference book for your gluten free reference library. Shelley will be a speaker at the conference also and we do sell this book at our meetings.
