Chat with “Ask the Dietitian” Experts on Twitter

Every Tuesday, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) posts answers to your questions on “Ask the Dietitian.” Now, get a chance to chat with them LIVE.

NFCA is hosting four hour-long chat sessions on Twitter, with two “Ask the Dietitian” experts leading the discussion. The chats will take place on Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Those interested in participating should follow and use the hashtag #GFchat to keep the conversation in one central steam.

How it Works:

NFCA will preselect questions to guide the discussion. Questions will come from NFCA staff, the guest dietitian and suggestions by the community (learn how to suggest a question below).

At the start of each chat, NFCA will introduce the guest dietitian. The guest dietitian will then introduce each question and invite discussion from the group. At that point, other participants in the chat are invited to chime in with their own tips or advice in response to the question. Dietitians and other healthcare professionals are encouraged to join!

This is an opportunity to share your experiences, but please stick to the question that’s being discussed.

At the end of the chat, NFCA will take note of any follow-up questions that went unanswered. These questions will be kept on hand for future “Ask the Dietitian” posts.

Suggesting a Question:

Each Wednesday, NFCA will post a “Call for Questions” on their Facebook page. To submit your question, simply write in the comments for that post. Please keep in mind, these questions should fit the topic for the upcoming #GFchat and should be something that invites discussion.

We look forward to tweeting with you!
