Celiac Disease Blood Screening at U-Chicago
As originally reported on Gluten-Free Fun on August 20, 2007, The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is hosting its annual celiac blood screening day on October 18, 2008.



Every fall The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center holds a free, celiac blood screening day to test people who are at risk for celiac disease. Each year they test nearly 500 participants, who come to the University of Chicago from all over the country. Many of the participants would not otherwise have had access to celiac disease testing, either because their doctors refused to carry out the tests, their insurance would not cover the cost or they were uninsured altogether.

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center will host its annual free blood screening on Saturday, October 18, 2008 from 8:30 am until Noon.

They will also host many exhibitors and an interactive panel of experts for Q&A at 10:30am.

Pre-Registration for the screening is required.

Exhibits and the Q&A is open to the public.

Please call 773-702-7593 to register.
