This webinar is free of charge and the only requirement is a working
Internet connection!

With their only treatment found in the grocery aisle and not behind
the pharmacist's counter, celiac disease patients have relied upon
delicious gluten-free recipes and cooking tips to navigate their
medically necessary diet. As research continues to prove the need for
a non-dietary therapy and scientists move closer to developing a
pharmaceutical treatment, it is important for patients to learn more
about the field of immunology, a critical piece to the celiac disease
puzzle but one that is often left out of the patient education, as
well as understand the basics about the drug development and approval

Join NFCA as Francisco Leon, MD, PhD, Vice President of Immunology
Translational Medicine at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson
and Johnson; and Ken Kilgore, MS, PhD, Director of ImmunoPharmacology
in the Immunology Therapeutic Area at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies
of Johnson and Johnson explain the basics of immunology and outline
the drug development and approval process.

RDs and DTRs who participate in this live 60-minute webinar will be
eligible to receive continuing education credit. See for more details.
