A Celiac Disease (CD) and Gluten Sensitivity support group meets monthly at Jones Regional Medical Center. Do you have gastrointestinal problems that are hard to pin down? Celiac Disease is much easier to diagnose than in the past. Once diagnosed, eliminating foods such as wheat that contain the protein Gluten can be very challenging.
However, the benefit to your health and well-being cannot be disputed. Come and meet people who have met this challenge and who have lots of ideas for living a Gluten/Wheat Free life. Ask questions, share ideas, new recipes and strategies for living with CD. A celiac support group meets in the hospital cafeteria on the second Thursday of each month, January thru November at 1:00 pm. Registration is not needed.
Marilyn works with individuals to identify reasonable and realistic lifestyle changes and goals. Research has shown that working with a dietitian and incorporating nutrition therapy techniques and strategies can improve health.
