It’s Celiac Awareness Month!

Celiac Awareness Month is here! Last month we helped you prepare for this month-long observation supported by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness by sharing a few resources to help you broaden your knowledge of Celiac Disease.

Be sure to pass this information along to your fellow nutrition professionals!
