Learn the latest information about celiac disease and gluten-related disorders from two world-renowned experts. This unique lecture is designed for dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, physicians, patients, and caregivers. The event was created by volunteers and is co-sponsored by two Southern California non-profit celiac support groups.

Her talk will address celiac disease, prevention, triggers, the role of genetics, microbiome, infections, different clinical presentations, non-celiac disease gluten sensitivity, and wheat starch and its role in wheat intolerance.
