2016 Canadian Celiac Association Conference
Canada’s breathtaking east coast beckons! The Canadian Celiac Association cordially invites you to its 2016 national conference, being held June 24-26, 2016 at the Holiday Inn in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador , on Canada’s eastern tip.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Daniel Leffler , an associate professor of medicine at Harvard University, and a leading world researcher on celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity (‘gluten sensitivity’). We are also welcoming numerous other fascinating presenters, including Erin Smith (the Gluten-Free Globetrotter), speaking about her many years of gluten-free travel and offering advice and useful pointers. Other pertinent topics to be addressed at the conference include celiac disease and osteoporosis, the pediatric and family doctor perspectives on celiac disease, a dietetic presentation, and the lighter side with Patrick Ledwell, a celiac stand-up comedian who has appeared on Canada’s national public radio.
Given that it is peak tourist season at that time, with opportunities to check out the icebergs and go whale-watching, the CCA anticipates significant interest and wants to make sure there are sufficient hotel rooms reserved for the conference. Please book as soon as possible.
When: June 24-26, 2016
Where: St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador
Cost:$155 ($225 CDN), which includes breakfast on both days of the conference, lunch on Saturday and access to the vendor fair, with lots of free samples and giveaway
