We meet the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7-9pm at Valley Medical Center in Renton. There are about 20-30 people who attend the meetings. They range from just diagnosed to veteran 15+ years with Celiac Disease. Our group welcomes a variety of people such as those who have Celiac Disease, gluten intolerance, want to find out more or have a family member who eats gluten free. Many family members accompany members at meetings. We usually start the meeting with a guest. After the guest speaks (they usually bring samples), then we usually have an open question time for new members/newly diagnosed to ask questions. Or we talk about recent gluten free news. And many times talk about local restaurants. The group is very informal and very supportive. Feel free to email or Facebook us any questions.
