CDF Conference and Expo

We’ve found an awesome way to begin celebrating Celiac Disease Awareness Month.  We’ll be attending the Celiac Disease Foundation’s National Education Conference & Expo on May 4th and 5th in Pasadena, CA.

I am so thrilled to be chosen as an “official blogger” for this event that I am actually speechless.  If you know me, you know that is almost impossible.

This two day event will feature an educational conference on May 4th and an Expo of gluten free products & services open to the public on May 5th.

Conference and Expo (for attendees only) Information

May 4, 2013 from 730 am to 430 pm at the Pasadena Convention Center.   This conference will be quite an educational opportunity for those following the gluten free diet whether they have celiac disease or gluten intolerance and for those who are involved in their lives.  Presentations will be given by medical professionals, researchers and advocates for those who either live a gluten free lifestyle due to an autoimmune disorder(s) or medical necessity.  Vendors will also be available during the conference from 10am to 430pm.

Expo Information

May 5, 2013 from 1000 am to 300 pm at the Pasadena Convention Center.  This will be first time that CDF also hosts a Gluten Free Expo on the Sunday following the annual conference. During past years, the Expo was available to attend only for those who also attended the conference on Saturday in addition to the educational program.  The “stand alone” portion of the Expo offers nearly 100 vendors.  The need for gluten free products isn’t limited to those with celiac disease.  According to CDF’s Development Director, Deborah Ceizler, “for celiacs, a gluten-free diet is not an option.  But there are millions of people who choose a gluten-free diet for a multitude of reasons.  This EXPO is a great way for anyone interested in, or even just curious about, gluten-free foods to try them, get credible information and network.”
