Roundtable on Celiac Disease at Columbia U
Due to many requests, the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University has decided 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. Columbia will conduct this program in an interactive format allowing airing of views and questions from all participants.

The first Roundtable on Celiac Disease will be held on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm in the Atchley Loeb Conference Room located in the Columbia University Medical Center. Parents of young children with celiac disease are invited to attend.

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 cb2280@columbia.edu. There is no charge to participate.

Atchley Loeb Conference Room
