Featured Meetup Event: The Sharing the Experience of a Gluten-Free Life
Considerable focus is given to the medical and nutritional aspects of gluten-free living but many emotional challenges are also encountered. For example, people often want to share how celiac disease or gluten-intolerance has affected his or her social life, dating, desire for traveling or willingness to negotiate eating out in non GF restaurants. Or, how maintaining a GF diet has affected your family, friends and other important relationships. Others might want to explore what a reasonable level of precaution is when attempting to adhere to a GF diet? Join our conversation with Curtis Brown, LCSW, a psychoanalyst/psychotherapist diagnosed with celiac disease who maintains a gluten-free diet.
Two sessions to choose from:

Looking for Meetup hosts:
In order to keep this group fun and exciting, I could really use your help. Many of you have expressed interest in planning and hosting events but unfortunately only a very small handful have stepped up and actually planned anything. Please respond to this email if you are interested in hosting an event. I will be happy to help you make the connections for events, but I need help hosting. I can't be everywhere at once!
Thank you and hope to see you soon
