Join us on December 1st for the next DIGID Journal Club: 'Food Insecurity Negatively Impacts Gluten Avoidance and Nutritional Intake in Patients with Celiac Disease’ by Ma et al. We plan to bring awareness to this particular public health challenge by reviewing the article followed by a thoughtful discussion. Given that celiac disease’s only treatment is diet-based therapy, food insecurity in this population is particularly concerning. Therefore, we aim to provide dietitians with more information as to how they can help their patients gain broader access to gluten free food.
Link to full-text article if needed.
When: Thursday December 1 at 7 PM EST
No registration necessary. CPEU only provided to live attendees.
- Review prevalence of food insecurity amongst the celiac disease patient population
- Evaluate effect of food insecurity on nutrient intake and adherence to the gluten free diet
- Discuss current available interventions and what dietitians can do to help in their patient’s communities
