Free Family Member Screening Day for Celiac Disease

We are excited to announce that the GLADD (Gluten & Allergic Digestive Disorders) Program is partnering with Beyond Celiac to host a FREE blood screening event for biological relatives of patients diagnosed with celiac disease on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 10 am – 4 pm at Wake Forest Baptist Health Medical Plaza – Clemmons, 2311 Lewisville-Clemmons Road, Clemmons, NC, 27012.

The event is open only to adults who:

  • Are 18 years and older,
  • Have a blood relative who has been diagnosed with celiac disease by a physician, and
  • Are on a regular, gluten-containing diet

Throughout the day, a panel of experts from around the country will be available to answer your questions about celiac disease. We encourage you to stop in for a short visit before or after receiving your free blood test.

Participation in this event will also support on-going research to help us advance our understanding of celiac disease.

We invite you to get involved today. There are two ways that you can participate.

I’m diagnosed with celiac disease.

Important! Before talking to your family about this event, we encourage you to learn about the specific steps you can take to increase their willingness to be tested for celiac disease.

Our partner, Beyond Celiac, developed the Talk.Tell.Test. approach to help you have a serious and successful conversation about celiac disease with your family. Visit their website to watch a video and download resources on how to have this important conversation.

I’m a family member of someone diagnosed with celiac disease.

Since celiac disease runs in families, blood relatives of people with the condition have a higher risk of developing it as well.

Take the first step in learning if you have celiac disease by registering  to receive a free blood test on October 22. When registering, you will have the ability to select the preferred time of day for your blood draw.  You will also be asked to complete an on-line questionnaire.  Learn more about this event and register today.

Availability is limited to the first 300 people. We strongly encourage online registration. Walk-ins will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
