We all know the numbers - only one percent of the estimated 3 million Americans who have celiac disease have been diagnosed. Aren't we lucky to be part of that one percent.
Let's help raise some awareness!!!
**Be a Celiac Advocate:
Send an email to your legislator urging them to support H.Con.Res. 70 -- Celiac Awareness Legislation. This legislation was introduced by Rep. Nita Lowey to make May National Celiac Disease Awareness Month. More awareness benefits us all in the terms of funding research, more insurance coverage, better labeling and more gluten free food options.
Follow this link to be a Celiac Advocate . I just did it and it actually took me less than 30 seconds!! Forward this link to your celiac community.
