News from the NFCA @celiaccentral #gf #celiac

I thought this information was worth sharing with you.

NFCA has exciting initiatives coming up over the next few weeks and I wanted to share those details with you.  We would greatly appreciate any help you can provide in spreading the word on your blog, Facebook or Twitter.

Our next free webinar is a hot topic: cross-contamination in restaurants.  With an expert panel to address questions and concerns gathered from the community, this is one you don’t want to miss.  The webinar, “Cross-Contamination in Restaurants: What You Need To Know” is on Thursday, August 16 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT.  We’ll be hosting another free webinar the following week on the 23rd focused on “Back to School: Preparing to Educate School Administrators on the Importance of Gluten-Free” at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT. 

As you know, Appetite for Awareness is right around the corner, but we’ve added a t-shirt contest to the event!  This is a way to get everyone involved, even if they can’t make it to the event in Philadelphia.  The contest is for amateurs and pros alike and the winning design will be determined via Facebook votes.  Pretty fun, right?  The deadline for submissions is on Wednesday, August 15. 

The Gluten-Free Pantry Raid is still in full swing, too.  The Grand Prize winner will go on a $500 gluten-free shopping spree with NFCA Founder & President Alice Bast and an expert dietitian. Then they’ll head home to organize the winner’s pantry and make sure all those gluten-free goods are stored safely. The deadline to enter is Friday, August 31.

In case you missed it in our August newsletter, NFCA recently published new webpages dedicated to celiac disease in families.  There are 2 new printable guides to address the prevalence of celiac in families and how to talk to family members and doctors about getting tested.  Check out the new pages:

We’re excited to be able to share these new resources with the community!

Please feel free to share these upcoming events and initiatives with your followers.  I’m happy to send more information or answer any questions you might have.
