1st Annual Celiac Education Day at NYU Langone Medical Center
The New York Langone Medical Center (NYULMC) Pediatric Celiac Disease and Gluten Related Disorders Program is hosting its 1st Annual Family Education Day. I am thrilled to be a part of this special day and to make my first journey back to New York City since moving to California in January. Join me on September 18, 2016 at 10am for this informative and exciting patient-centered day.

The New York Langone Medical Center Pediatric Celiac Disease and Gluten Relate Disorders Program is a multidisciplinary medical and psychosocial support program. Through education and peer support, the program aims to empower children and their families to understand their disease, instill confidence to discuss and advocate for their disease, reduce feelings of isolation, and increase knowledge of the gluten-free diet. The program not only provides efficient and comfortable visits with our health care providers, but also hosts a myriad of kid and family friendly gluten free events.

And this year, The NYULMC Pediatric Celiac Disease and Gluten Related Disorders Program is excited to host its 1st Annual Family Education Day!!

Gluten-Free Fun is Getting Married
This summer has been crazy with lots of travel to Canada (two visits in less than a month), exploring the redwoods of California, and having visitors to our new house from across North America. This blog has suffered but life happens, as I am sure you understand. I've had a great summer, but the greatest day of all was the day I got engaged! Yes, this Gluten-Free Fun girl is getting married. WOOHOO!

Even though I feel like the most un-bridal bride ever, because I am not one of those girls that has been planning their wedding in their brain forever, I am still beyond thrilled to say "I DO!" The one thing I have always known for sure is that I want a wedding where I can eat everything, or as close to everything as possible, at my wedding. My top question when reaching out to wedding venues is "How can you accommodate a bride with celiac disease who must eat 100% gluten-free?" If the venue doesn't know what I am talking about, they are out. I don't want to have to worry about a gassy wedding night or something even worse. I want to have a worry-free, delicious, and magical wedding day. Stay tuned as I put together a list of top questions to ask when planning a gluten-free catered event.

In the meantime, I am so thrilled that chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne are naturally gluten-free. Cheers!
