Counting the Days

As many of you know, I am a proud member of the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA)
I am very excited about going to the annual conference in Ottawa this month and I am counting the days.
I will be arriving in Ottawa on the 12th of May, so that I don’t miss one second of the conference.

Ottawa is proud to be hosting the 30th annual Canadian Celiac Association National Conference, taking place May 13-15, 2011 at what will be the recently opened, brand spanking new Convention Centre in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Please come and join us!

The exciting spectacle will take place within convenient walking distance of numerous hotels, the famous Byward Market, fine celiac dining options, the University of Ottawa, the magnificent Rideau Centre and, of course, Parliament Hill. From the Tulip Festival to Gatineau Park and from NHL hockey to the Arboretum, Ottawa has something for everyone.

The Conference will feature a roster of expert speakers drawn from across North America. Among them are:

KEYNOTE: Dr. Daniel Leffler, Harvard University, co-author of Real Life with Celiac Disease.
Dr. Peter Green, Columbia University, co-author of Celiac Disease: a Hidden Epidemic.
Dr. Jon Meddings, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary.
Dr. Ted Malahias, Dentist, and frequent speaker on dental abnormalities in celiac disease.
HOTEL OPTIONS: Please click here for details about the wide variety of accommodation options for the Conference, including the Westin, connected to the Convention Centre, where we have negotiated a good price of $179.

If you’re planning to stay with relatives or at a spot in another part of town, you need not worry about transport and parking downtown. The area around the Convention Centre is the hub of Ottawa’s public transit, OC Transpo, and nearly all major bus routes cross it, including one route that runs 24 hours a day. For those arriving at the Ottawa airport or train station, both are only one frequently-running city bus away from the Convention Centre.

Hope to see you there!
