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)Â this Wednesday, December 19, 2012.
The webinar, titled â€śYou Ask, We Answer: 60 Minutes with Top Celiac Disease Researchersâ€ť, begins at 11 a.m. CST, and will be an opportunity for Dr. Murray to address the gluten-free communityâ€™s most pressing questions about celiac disease.
â€śThe 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.Â Â 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.â€ť
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.
