Notes from Anne and LaDonna
GIG's 2010 Annual Conference - Minneapolis.
"This year the theme was "Savor the Flavor". Flavor and choices of gluten free foods continues to expand as more and more people find they have celiac disease or gluten intolerance. The talks emphasized not only living gluten free but eating foods that support good health. Each meeting is like a celebration for living gluten free.
Celebration always includes people - over 300 people attended. I was able to see old friends and meet new friends. I have always said that gluten free people are some of the nicest people I know. I strongly encourage you to attend an annual GIG conference. At these conferences you will meet wonderful people, hear the latest information about celiac disease/gluten intolerance and get to sample new foods from the 50 or more vendors who set up booths.
The next meeting will be held in Orlando, FL June 30-July 2. This will be a wonderful trip for the whole family. I will let you know the details as I hear them.
LaDonna and I are sharing notes we jotted down and hope they accurately represent what the speakers said. This is not medical advice. Please see your medical team for diagnosis and treatment concerns.
