Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist and celiac disease expert Joseph Murray, M.D., will be taking part in a webinar organized by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) this Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012.
The webinar, titled “You Ask, We Answer: 60 Minutes with Top Celiac Disease Researchers”, begins at 11 a.m. CST, and will be an opportunity for Dr. Murray to address the gluten-free community’s most pressing questions about celiac disease.
“The public is keenly interested in gluten and its potential for harms such as celiac disease,” says Dr. Murray. “The popularity of the topic, however, is not matched by a high level of scientifically based information. As clinicians and scientists, we are both informed and challenged by patients and the members of the public to provide answers. This webinar provides such a platform.”
In addition to Dr. Murray, the webinar will also feature Daniel Leffler, M.D., M.S., of the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Celiac Disease Testing
Mayo Medical Laboratories' comprehensive testing for celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease evaluates patients suspected of having celiac disease, including patients with compatible symptoms, patients with atypical symptoms, and individuals at increased risk. We also offer a variety of interactive, step-by-step algorithms that provide the most appropriate selection of tests for each patient, while maintaining the highest possible sensitivity and specificity.
