In anticipation of the event the magazine had me write a travel piece on things to do in PDX and where to eat if you’re gluten-free. In celebration of the upcoming expo they’re allowing access to the article even if you’re not a current subscriber. You can find it here.
If you have a business and you’d like to have access to the gluten-free food crowd, I’ve been told there are still a few spaces available as of the time I’m hitting ‘publish’ on this post. Contact Shelia (pronounced Shel-E-uh) at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are particularly interested in getting a few more more local vendors at this point so make sure they know I sent you!
Below is my speaking schedule. Also on the docket are Tom O’Bryan who organized and curated The Gluten Summit earlier this year, Nadine Grzeskowiak, the Gluten-free RN, Alicia Woodward, editor of Gluten-free & More and our own local culinary stars Laura B Russell, Kyra Bussanich, and more!
Dr Samantha Brody
Saturday Sept 6th, 12:25-1:25
Are you gluten-free or considering going gluten-free? Dr. Samantha will clear up all of your confusion and questions about the basics of gluten-spectrum disorders and gluten-free diets. There is so much information and misinformation out there about testing, what you can and can’t eat, the differences between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, the impact of gluten on our bodies, laws about gluten labeling, and more. Dr. Samantha leaves no stone unturned and you’ll head out feeling relieved to fully understand the ins and outs of gluten-free living. Attendees will also get a link for a complementary copy of her soon to be published eBook- Gluten-free Essentials: What You Need to Know About Your Gluten-Free Life.
MAXIMIZING YOUR ENERGY ON A GLUTEN-FREE DIET
Dr Samantha Brody
Sunday Sept 7th, 12:25-1:25
In this session, Dr Samantha will explore the reasons you may still feel tired even on a gluten-free diet. From medical conditions to the foods you’re choosing, there is always a reason. Dr Samantha will expertly guide you in assessing which things you do and don’t have control over that may be making you tired, and teach you how to address them so you feel the best you possibly can every single day.
Come for one talk or come for them all, eat a few samples or stuff yourself to the brim. It’s bound to be a fun, entertaining, educational and delicious weekend. See you there!
Yours in Health,
