Meeting Calendar for GIGCA

September 17th 6-8pm – Cynthia Kupper, RD, will be talking about “What's in the Horizon for Gluten Free Living”


Cynthia Kupper will be flying in from Seattle to speak at our branch meeting. She is the executive director of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (GIG), the nation’s first non-profit association with the mission to improve the health and lives of those living gluten-free. In this leadership role for more than 15 years, she has helped GIG obtain a strong national presence, increased its net assets by more than 500 percent and expanded its reach to 75 affiliate groups in the U.S. and 13 internationally. She has allowed GIG to support and educate people with gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and non celiac gluten sensitivity.


You will not want to miss this opportunity to meet the head of our organization and to hear her speak.


There will be foods to sample, door prizes and a light supper will be served.


Please RSVP so we can be sure we have enough chairs for everyone. Thank you.
