The Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group (WCSSG) is holding its next meeting on Sunday, March 30th at 3:00 pm at Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, New York.

Come as early as 1:30 pm to take full advantage of the vendors at the meeting. They include Everybody Eats (crusty breads!) and Joan's GF Great Bakes (bagels and now a pizza with great buzz!) as well as Mary Ann Roglieri, author of The Gluten Free Guide to New York.

The educational part of the program is a "response to the many requests we have for help with living as well as eating gluten free." Social workers Emily Feiner and Eibhlin Donlon-Farry will cover topics such as menu essentials, keeping things in perspective, self-perception and self-esteem, dealing with social embarrassment, coping according to your personality type, and dining (and dining out) for business, friends, and family.

The Greater New York City Celiac Support Group (GNYCCSG/CSA) is holding another one of its dinners, this time at Bistango (415 Third Avenue at East 29th Street) on Tuesday, March 25 at 6:30 (though you're encouraged to arrive fifteen minutes earlier). Reservations (and, if necessary cancellations) should be made with group leaders Merle Cachia (212-662-2464) or Mary Ferry (212-304-1026).
