Join Mike and Cam for a fascinating, candid talk with Dr. Edwin Liu, pediatric gastroenterologist and the Taplin Endowed Chair for Celiac Disease at Children’s Hospital, Colorado. We discuss Dr. Liu’s groundbreaking research that shows the incidence of Celiac Disease is higher in the most recent generation of adolescents in the Colorado area than previously thought. Are we on the verge of a new “celiac epidemic?”

We also hear Dr. Liu’s thoughts on his approach to treating kids with celiac, and that it is often not a “one size fit’s all” diagnosis. Dr. Liu also shares his hopes and vision for the future for celiac diagnosis and treatment.
