It’s almost that time of year again! May is fast approaching (although I think we need to let Mother nature know) and May is Celiac Awareness month. May is also the month that we here at Northern Medical Group host our annual Walk for Celiac Disease. This walk is in its 7th year and the goal is always to raise awareness of Celiac Disease. This year we are having our walk at the Walkway over the Hudson (Poughkeepsie side) Please excuse the construction. It is shaping up to be a fun walk with great vendors, gluten free baking Demo with the Culinary Institutes own Chef Coppedge and a gluten free goodie bag for those signed up for the walk (While supplies last). I will also be there with a Q and A session on all things gluten free. To register for the walk please go to our website Digestivediseaseny.com and you can register! Hope to see you there!
