The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is one of my favorite resources for all things pertaining to Celiac Disease. This goes for medical information, gluten-free diet, how to navigate certain situations, etc. One of the special features of the NFCA is the free webinars they put on. There is usually at least one per month and there is an archive of all of the previous webinars should you miss one or want to go back to reference one. The next upcoming webinar will be on October 27, 2015 and will address the importance of Celiac Disease Research. More about the upcoming webinar:
Join the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness for a special webinar to talk about the critical role patients play in research with three key leaders who are working to change the face of celiac disease:
Jacob Hughey, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Institute for Computational Health Sciences, University of California, San Francisco and diagnosed with celiac disease in 2012
Francisco Leon, MD, PhD, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer, Celimmune
Joseph A. Murray, MD, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and NFCA Scientific/Medical Advisory Council member
Drs. Hughey, Leon and Murray will share examples of how patients have contributed to successful celiac disease research in the past and discuss how a motivated and educated patient community can continue to help to advance the field. Tune in to learn how patients, researchers and NFCA can work together to make a change.
