GI Experts to Host Live Teleseminar On Probiotics, IBS, Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity

January 26, 2012

Jamieson Laboratories and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) have secured two internationally recognized experts to host a public teleseminar on probiotics and their role in gastrointestinal (GI) health. Dr. Daniel Leffler, MD, MS and Shelley Case, BSc, RD will discuss the latest studies and take questions from the public regarding probiotics and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

The event is on February 1, 2012 at 8pm ET. Registration is open at Members of the public are encouraged to sign up now to secure their spot. Ten of the registrants will receive copies of Dr. Leffler and Shelley Case's books, Real Life with Celiac Disease Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten Free, and Gluten-Free Diet, plus a two-month supply of Jamieson Probiotics.

"We're excited to have secured these experts because education is among the most important steps towards improved GI health," says Dale Bouskill, Director, Business Development at Jamieson Laboratories, organizers of the event.

The probiotic diet, probiotic foods and supplements have surged in popularity over the past few years. At the same time, so has an awareness of these GI conditions and a widespread interest in gluten-free living. With all of this has come much confusion.

"Using sound science, Dr. Leffler and Shelley Case can help cut through the hype and misconceptions surrounding probiotics and these GI conditions," Mr. Bouskill adds.

Organizers expect that people with IBS, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity and their loved ones will be among the first to register, but welcome anyone with an interest in probiotics and GI health. The seminar will also cover what to look for in probiotic supplements and whether they're suitable for use with celiac disease, IBS and gluten sensitivity.

Registrants are encouraged to submit questions ahead of time. Anyone interested in registering for the teleseminar can visit
