Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group Meeting
The next Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group Meeting (WCSSG) is this coming Sunday, March 29, 2009.

Phelps Memorial Hospital - Auditorium
Sleepy Hollow, NY

Join the WCSSG on March 29th when a special panel of WCSSG members will share their knowledge and experience with gluten-free learning and living.

Hear how one very special family lives and copes with celiac disease. There are many wonderful families dealing with CD in Westchester, none perhaps more so than the Leslie family who are known to many people through the Colin Leslie Walk for Celiac Disease. The Leslie clan are:

* Cheryl Leslie, who is training to be a dietitian, and is mom of two children with celiac disease.
* Colin – a high school junior with CD who, since he was a freshman, has been running the Colin Leslie Walk and Vendor Fair, one of the largest regional events benefiting celiac disease.
* Carine – a middle school student, with CD and type 1 diabetes.
* Mike – Colin and Carine’s father, and strong supporter of advocacy

The panel will also include WCSSG Board members:

* Rory Jones, co-author of "Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic"
* Pat MacGregor, founder of the Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program
* Chris Spreitzer, co-president of WCSSG, founder of the Catholic Celiac Society
* Sue Goldstein, founder and past president of WCSSG, who leads our WCSSG new patient meetings.

Share your questions and concerns about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle. This informal meeting will provide the perfect opportunity to discuss everything from the kitchen to the school cafeteria, from family dynamics to workplace choices, eating in and eating out, shopping and snacking.
