August 2017 Meeting Summary

The Prescott Area Celiac & Gluten Free Support Group had a very good turnout for its July meeting.  The Gluten Free & Allergy Free Expo was discussed...the pros and cons on attending.  The next one in Arizona will be June of next year.  After meeting the director, Jen, of the Expo, it seems as though they get a great room rental rate in the summer (duh!) so, she plans on continuing having the event that month.  This year it was not nearly as crowded and rather than having the speakers in hallway break out rooms, all the speakers were in the same great exhibition hall.  I thought it was more convenient that way, in fact.
Next month, we would like to have discussion on 2 key items........where would you or a love one go to live, when it's time to live in a retirement community or a care facility that can and will accommodate Celiac and gluten free dietary needs????  Are there any facilities available to our community?
Second, What is your protocol or remedy if you become "glutenized" by cross contamination or accidentally ingesting gluten????
I will have your complimentary, newest issue of the magazine, "Gluten Free & More".  This magazine hits the racks this month and retails for $7.99 to the general public.  First come, first served on the distribution of the magazine at the August 8thmeeting.  I have a designated number of magazines the publisher sends me.
See you next month.
