From the Experts: Join Our Virtual Monthly Meeting on “All Things Celiac”
“Celiac Disease and Your Reproductive Health”

Are you pregnant, thinking about starting a family, or caring for an infant? Join the National Celiac Association (NCA) and the Harvard Medical School Celiac Research Program for the first webinar in our Spring 2022 “All Things Celiac” series. Speakers will present on selected topics for 60 minutes, followed by 15 minutes for Q&A, on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at 1:00 pm ET.

How does celiac disease—treated or untreated—affect the reproductive health of both women and men? Fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth are some of the topics that will be addressed by Maureen Leonard, MD, from the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Amelie Therrien, MD, and Marcela Banegas, MD, from the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). They will review the latest data on celiac-related symptoms and the impact on the quality of life in patients with celiac disease during pregnancy and how genetics might contribute to the development of celiac disease.

Lee Graham, executive director of the NCA, will introduce the webinar, and Dascha Weir, MD, Clinical Director of the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, will moderate the session. A Q&A session will follow the presentations; please submit general questions below or during the webinar on the Zoom platform.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 1.25 CEU for Registered Dietitians (pending). CEU certificates will be emailed to participants who attend the live webinar event after completion of webinar and approval by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
