EXPO RETURNS WITH MORE SPECIALISTS, GREAT FOODS AND COOKING LESSONS
Health specialists to share latest research on Celiac, gluten illnesses.
One of the leading specialists in the study of Celiac Disease and gluten-related illnesses is returning to Carmel in October for a two-day workshop, Oct. 13 and 14. Attendance to hear Dr. Alessio Fasano, Director, Center for Celiac Research, is expected to grow substantially with the heightened awareness of gluten’s presence in the food supply.

He published the study in 2003 that established the rate of the gluten autoimmune disorder as one in 133 Americans. He has been recognized with multiple industry awards and has also been published in multiple journals, books and publications.
Not only will Fasano share his latest findings, he entertains questions from those in attendance about specific gluten-related symptoms and makes recommendations as to best practices in food and health choices.
