Event Details

The Celiac Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) strives each year to provide children and caregivers with celiac disease a one-day, state-of-the-art multidisciplinary education program. Our annual education day centers around the mission of the Celiac team at CHOP to promote community awareness by providing our CHOP families with evidence-based lectures provided by respected experts within the field.  


Both the clinical implications of celiac disease and the importance of adhering to a gluten diet, as well as future therapeutic treatments, will be discussed. Children in attendance are provided the opportunity to attend interactive age-specific lectures and to learn through play with CHOP child life specialists.


Registration/breakfast begins at 8:15 a.m., and the program begins at 9 a.m. We'll offer complimentary gluten-free meals for lunch, and attendees can sample gluten-free products from several vendors who join us for the education day.


Complimentary parking is available in the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care parking garage, located at 3500 Civic Center Blvd., Philadelphia, PA 19104. Please bring your parking ticket to the registration desk for validation.


Please RSVP by March 24, 2017. Registration is limited to two adults and two children per family.
