Auburn, Washington—To kick off Celiac Awareness Month, the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) will host a one-hour virtual education session, titled “Staying Safely Gluten-free: At Home and Beyond,” on May 3 at 5pm PST/8pm EST. The talk will include information on how gluten-intolerant and sensitive persons can protect themselves from accidental gluten consumption.
Education specialist Lola O’Rourke M.S., R.D.N., will be moderating the event, with featured speaker Joe Murray M.D., a gastroenterologist with the Mayo Clinic. Laura Allred, Ph.D., Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) Regulatory Manager, and GFCO Manager of Quality Control, Ronni Alicea R.D.N., will also join the discussion.
