2021 Celiac Disease Virtual Events

One of the things I miss the most during this pandemic is connecting with the celiac community and networking with food brands in real life. In a normal year, I have usually been to at least two events by mid-February. While it is still not advised to meet with large groups in person, there are plenty of virtual events in the next few months where we can connect online. I am excited to share the following events with you.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter 2021 Celiac Virtual Events

All of the following events require pre-registration! Space is limited for some events so be sure to sign up if you are interested. If you have any questions about the upcoming events, please reach out to the respective organization.

Do you know about a celiac disease-related virtual event that is not on this list?
