GIG of Marin February Meeting: Gluten and the BrainPosted on January 16th, 2011 by Alison Read 3 Comments - Add Your Own »
We are very excited to bring you a guest speaker from the medical community: Julie Griffith, MD. Dr. Griffith is a neurologist specializing in learning and behavior disorders including autism, gut/brain/immune dysfunction, and neuropsychiatry. In her San Rafael practice, the Neurology Health Center, she treats both children and adults.
Dr. Griffith will speak on How Gluten Can Affect the Brain: From Seizures and Headaches to Anxiety and Inattention. Though celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are most commonly associated with gastrointestinal symptoms, brain dysfunction can be the primary, or even the only, manifestation of intolerance to gluten.
An internationally recognized expert in neurobiology, Dr. Griffith completed a pediatric residency at UCSF, a neurology residency at Harvard and a behavioral neurology fellowship at Harvard Children’s Hospital.
Please come to this important meeting with Dr. Griffith and bring your friends!
Whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or are learning more about gluten free living for yourself, family or friends, we welcome you to the GIG of Marin. New members, friends, and loved ones are always welcome.
