May is Celiac Awareness month and my ever-fabulous friends over at the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) are having a Blogger a Day series the entire month to not only help to raise awareness for Celiac disease but to also highlight some great resources for those living with Celiac disease to turn to.
I am honored to have been selected as the first in this series to help kick-off what I am sure will be a fantastic series and I know that I am looking forward to learning more about the 30 others that will be featured throughout the month. I mean can how can you go wrong with a cavalcade of Celiacs?
While this is a great way to help raise awareness and show how divers the Celiac community is, I wanted to also bring to light that every month is Celiac Awareness month at the NFCA. They are truly a great organization that work tirelessly throughout the year to help make life as a Celiac easier for all of us.
Whether it is educating restaurants, business, and professionals through its Gluten-Free Resource Education and Awareness Training (GREAT) program or throwing one heck of a gluten-free bash in Philadelphia at its annual Appetite for Awareness (read all about my experience at last year’s event Part I and Part II), they are constantly bringing Celiac awareness into the spotlight. You can read all about what the NCFA has been up to this past year on their Web site not to mention they have quite a few great things on the near horizon.
But this is really just the tip of the iceberg and I encourage you to spend some time on their Web site and peruse all of the great information that they have compiled. It’s all there from helpful resources and webinars to personal stories on other’s journey with Celiac disease.
I am happy to count the NFCA as friends and thank them for all that they do to help raise awareness every day for Celiacs across the country.
