Meanwhile, in Mississippi

Here's a television appearance from Elizabeth Smith, founder and president of the Gulf Coast Celiac Foundation. Elizabeth, also the owner of Celiac Health Management, talks with the WLOX anchors about how celiac disease is often misdiagnosed. She advises that people diagnosed with conditions such as IBS, but who do not improve with medical treatment, should inquire as to whether they might also have celiac disease.

And there's an NYC connection, too: Even though the Gulf Coast Celiac Foundation is far from the Big Apple, its website includes a number of papers by Dr. Peter Green of the Celiac Disease Center of Columbia University (CDCCU).
