Today we are talking about the recent Celiac Disease Symposium at the Columbia Celiac Disease Center. This biennial event hosts two forums, one scientific and one clinical, and attracts, researchers, physicians, patients, parents, and nutritionists from around the world. It’s an amazing time to come together to learn, see old friends and make some new ones. Unfortunately, this year because of the Corona virus, the conference had a last-minute shift and only the speakers were able to gather in New York City. Thankfully the organizers (Dr. Peter Green and his team) were able to set up a web-based service so that the attendees could tune in via live stream and still partake in the incredible sharing of knowledge.
Since we know many of our listeners were unable to attend, we are going to do a recap of the conference today on the podcast and talk about some of the big topics with one of our favorite guests, Dr. Jocelyn Silvester from Boston Children’s Hospital.
Thank you to the Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
