NFCA Webinar: Cross-Contamination in Restaurants

The newest addition to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness webinar line-up is “Cross-Contamination: What You Need to Know.”  I couldn’t be more excited about this webinar topic, as it seems to be one that is always coming up .  Even those of us who have been gluten-free for more than a year or two run across difficulties on occasion, so it isn’t just a webinar for newbies. 

The webinar will take place on Thursday, August 16, 2012 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT. 

In June, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) asked the community to share your gluten-free dining concerns. Now, your questions and comments are guiding the development of a special webinar on cross-contamination in restaurants. The session will be presented online and will focus on three core goals: education, empowerment and advocacy – the cornerstones of NFCA’s mission. The webinar will last for 75 minutes, with each panelist speaking for 20 minutes and a 15-minute period at the close of the presentation for Q&A.

This educational session will feature a panel of third party industry experts, including both foodservice and healthcare professionals:
• Ken Schelper, Vice President of Davanni’s; Board of Directors for Minnesota Restaurant Association
• Amy Jones, MS, RD, LD, Chief Clinical Dietitian and Celiac Support Group Facilitator, Mary Rutan Hospital
• Pam Cureton, RD, LDN, Clinical and Research Dietitian, Center for Celiac Research, University of Maryland

Supported by a generous anonymous donor with a passionate interest in health and wellness
