Canadian Celiac Association Conference

Celiacs at the Centre of it All!

June 4 - 6, 2010

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the world’s leading research and clinical experts on Celiac Disease Joseph A. Murray, M.D. will inform and enlighten us on the latest research involving complications and outcomes of Celiac Disease. Educated and trained in Ireland, his interests in gluten-sensitivities and Celiac Disease have brought him to the Mayo Clinic where he collaborates on a variety of research activities with the Departments of Dermatology, Immunology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Epidemiology, and Biostatistics. These studies encompass complications of Celiac Disease including small bowel cancer and intersect with programs in the Mayo Comprehensive Clinical Cancer Center and the Clinical Research Unit (CRU). His presentations at the 2010 National Conference will speak directly to the health consumer and offer insight into the hidden signs and dangers of “Silent Celiac Disease.” Dr. Murray brings us essential knowledge that will keep us informed, help us to better advocate for our health, and support the gluten-free lifestyle. Dr. Murray’s presentations are a MUST for those living with Celiac Disease and their families.

The 2010 National Conference also features informative sessions that will address confusion and concerns over medications, combat the challenges of cooking gluten-free and keeping meals creative and exciting, present the results of the CCA National Survey, and so much more.

The confusion and stress for those recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease, or someone incorporating gluten-free shopping and cooking into their routine, can be overwhelming. “Gluten Free 101” will bring participants to the basics of a gluten-free diet to calm the anxiety and get you started.

This is your opportunity to visit with the leading manufacturers of gluten-free products and learn more about Celiac Disease all under one roof. Sample while you shop and connect with other Celiacs in our Exhibit Hall.

But, one of the best parts of a National Conference is the food ! Join us for delectable gluten-free dishes in our breakfast and lunch buffets, and the Nutrition Breaks. The Gala Banquet is your chance to enjoy an elegant gluten-free meal, great company and conversation, and a worry-free dining experience. Chefs are busy completing an additional gluten-free Room Service Menu to bring that extra treat for Celiacs. For those who want to explore the sites and cultures of Winnipeg, our local gluten-free Restaurant Guide and Conference Map will point you in the right direction.

The 2010 National Conference, Celiacs at the Centre of it All, brings us together at the centre of the nation, to the centre of the latest research initiatives, and to the centre of our concerns over Celiac Disease and the gluten-free lifestyle. Register now! We hope to see you at the centre of it all!
