This Celiac Life: The Realities of Living with Celiac Disease
Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST/11 a.m. to 12 p.m. PST
Everyone has large and complex networks that play a role in our health, happiness, success and satisfaction in life. A person's network can be significantly impacted by a life-changing event, including the diagnosis of a chronic condition like celiac disease.
Celiac disease affects more than just the food we eat - it presents a unique set of challenges within our networks at home, work, socially and beyond. Through the exploration and understanding of our own networks, we can learn what steps to take in order to better manage celiac disease and live gluten-free.
Join the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) as Glenna Crooks, PhD, founder of SageMyLife, takes you through one individual's journey before and after a celiac disease diagnosis and dives into the many ways that a celiac disease diagnosis can impact the relationships with those around us.
