NFCA Webinar: What Wikipedia Can't Tell you About Celiac Disease Prevention

The internet can be a useful resource when seeking information on anything and everything. The catch is knowing which resources are reliable and which are not. When my kids are writing papers for school, they mainly use the internet for their research. Back in my day we had to physically go to the library and use the encyclopedia or other books we found on whatever topic we happened to be researching. These days we have information websites like Wikipedia. While Wikipedia can be a useful resource for some facts and information, it can be edited by anyone, so there may be no way to know if the information found there is accurate.

The newest upcoming seminar from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is “What Wikipedia Can’t Tell You About Celiac Disease Prevention – Hear From the Experts.”  Read below for more information:

It is well known that a diagnosis of celiac disease is followed by a slew of challenges and roadblocks – from a significantly higher grocery bill to associated health concerns to limitations on socializing, travel, dining out and everything in between. What if we could prevent these roadblocks altogether?

Researchers have increasingly been focused on the prevention of celiac disease in recent years, testing many different theories. Learn about these studies and how researchers are working to set a different course for those who are at risk of developing celiac disease. Join experts Alessio Fasano, MD, Carlo Catassi, MD, and Sabine Vriezinga, MD in this very special webinar event as we delve into the latest endeavors in celiac disease prevention research.
