This episode is a follow up to Episode 298 when I attended an event called The State of Celiac Disease in Canada during the last week of February. Celiac Canada held the event to present the preliminary results of the recent national survey.

During the event, Melissa Secord the Executive Director of Celiac Canada spoke. I had more questions for Melissa, so I invited her on to this episode of the Podcast. Now that the preliminary results of the survey were being evaluated, I wanted to know more about what the results meant to Celiac Canada, and how they were going to use what they were learning to advance their efforts on our behalf.

Also, at the event in February, a woman by the name of Linda Sills took to the podium to tell her family’s story of dealing with care homes for her elderly mother. Linda gave an emotional talk, and again, there was more I wanted to know. The prospect of choosing a long-term care home for a loved one or yourself, is daunting, but unfortunately, for many of us, it’s a fact of life. I was grateful that Linda trusted me with her moving story and allowed me to dig a bit deeper into how and why. This was a powerful conversation, and one you may want to refer for others to listen to. Thanks Linda, for sharing in such a personal way.
