May is Celiac Awareness Month! Every May, we combine our efforts with other Canadian Celiac Association Chapters coast to coast, as well as the Canadian Celiac Association National office, to educate and increase awareness.
Throughout May, the Canadian Celiac Association – Nova Scotia Chapter reaches out to members and the general public to educate Canadians about celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and the gluten free diet.
Annual events that take place during Celiac Awareness Month include:
- Maritime Celiac Day
- Heather White Memorial Walk-A-Thon and BBQ (organized by the New Glasgow Support Group)
- Canadian Celiac Association National Conference
