Celiac Education Day (Philadelphia, PA)
March 31 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
The Center for Celiac Disease at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) strives each year to provide children and caregivers with celiac disease a one-day, state-of-the-art multidisciplinary education program. Our annual education day centers around the mission of the Celiac team at CHOP to promote community awareness by providing our CHOP families with evidence-based lectures provided by respected experts within the field.
Both the clinical implications of celiac disease and the importance of adhering to a gluten-free diet, as well as future therapeutic treatments, will be discussed. Children in attendance are provided the opportunity to attend interactive age-specific lectures and to learn through play with CHOP’s child life specialists.
