April showers bring May flowers, or in Arizona…it’s hot every month stop bothering us with stupid rhymes. But April is great because it’s my birthday, but also because it is the month that I start ramping up my work that happens all month long in May for Celiac Disease Awareness Month!
Celiac Disease Foundation Conference and Expo 2018
This year, the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference and Expo happens in May for Celiac Disease Awareness Month! I’ll be traveling to Pasadena early for Mom 2.0 Conference (which, thankfully is just down the street – also in Pasadena!) and staying at the Pasadena Convention Center for this awesome annual event.
We can’t WAIT! I attend ever year and have a great time connecting with blogger friends, meeting new fans, and seeing all of the Celiac and the Beast shirts and hoodies at the show from people who have seen me at this show since I started blogging. Check out some of my past articles about the show!
It’s in Pasadena, CA every year, so I understand if many of you can’t or aren’t willing to travel to attend, but I would love to see you all there!
Can’t make it? Follow along on social media using the hashtag #CDFExpo!
Below are some details about the event. We’d love to see you at the conference, expo, or both! I’ll be on the expo floor selling books and t-shirts and speaking on Sunday.
