Our Support Group

Attendance was up at the November meeting of the Gluten Free Support Group.  Speaker Lisa Angst gave a most interesting presentation, sharing her experience with relationships, travel and shopping while coping with health issues and diet restrictions.  She offered to be our guest again at a future meeting.  Lisa's book, Living Well with Diet Restrictions, is available at Amazon.com and through Barnes & Noble.
We are on a search for a new meeting place as the Public Safety Complex at the Clark County Fairgrounds is utilized by the academy every Saturday throughout the first six months of the calendar year.  Your suggestions for a location should be sent to Maureen Marty at mamarty@comcast.net.
Also, support group members would like to hear your suggestions or requests for topics for our meetings.
