Excerpt from Smart College Visit: Being Gluten Free in College:
Would you choose a college based on dining hall menus? For the thousands of teens living with celiac disease, that frivolous-sounding question may make the difference between a healthy lifestyle and one that can do permanent damage to their bodies.
Smart College Visit is tackling this important issue during National Celiac Awareness Month by providing information and resources for parents and college-bound teens with celiac disease so that they can more easily take celiac management into consideration when choosing a college and making plans for living heathly lifestyles while at college.
To kick off the topic, Smart College visit will host Wendy Gregory Kaho (@midlife_celiac), blogger and college mom with two children who have celiac disease during #CampusChat at 9pm EST on Wednesday, May 9, 2012.
Wendy shares her story on SmartCollegeVisit.com of her teens' college search and how they prepared for living gluten free in college.
