Yet another reminder: Early registration for the XII International Celiac Disease Symposium (November 9-11, 2006) will continue through August 15!

If you've been following this blog, you probably know what I think: This is a great opportunity for laypeople as well as medical professionals in the New York City area.

Let's say you're a celiac civilian interested in the Clinical Forum. For $195 (the early registration fee) you can attend panels from Thursday through Saturday, enjoy gluten-free snacks and meals at the symposium, and attend receptions in the company of others who have similar interests. For such celiac solidarity, that's $65/day including food--and $100 less than the normal registration fee.

In years to come, you can expect this major conference to take place far away from New York City and involve significant travel and lodging expenses. But this November, for those of us who live nearby, it'll arguably pay for itself--especially if you take advantage of early registration.
