IFEDD + BALANCE EVENT: What's Gluten Got To Do With It?
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE NEXT INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF EATING DISORDER DIETITIANS (IFEDD) EVENT AT BALANCE!
THIS FREE EVENT WILL FEATURE BALANCE FOUNDER & IFEDD MEMBER MELAINIE ROGERS
In this presentation, Melainie Rogers will take us on a journey of all things gluten. She will lead a discussion and provide guidance on the following:
What to do when a client comes in for eating disorder treatment reporting gluten sensitivities
Foods to accommodate in treatment
When to insist on allergy tests and which tests to order
What happens next in terms of case management and treatment options if a client’s allergy tests are negative
How do we best treat people with both an eating disorder and celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivities?
What about our WPAG (People Without Celiac Disease Avoiding Gluten) eating disorder clients who may insist on eliminating gluten from their meals?
THIS WILL BE AN INFORMATIVE PRESENTATION AND AN INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION IN WHICH CASE SCENARIOS AND QUESTIONS ARE ENCOURAGED!
All ED RDs, dietetic interns and nutrition students are welcome to attend -- IFEDD members and non-members.
Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 from 6-8:30pm.
WHAT TO BRING:
Yourself, & business cards (there will be time for mingling and networking).
