While at Digestive Disease Week, I spent some time talking with the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center people. I had heard about their care package program years ago, but it had slipped to the back of my mind. I wanted to share it with you in case you or your child has been recently diagnosed.
The care package program is designed to help those newly-diagnosed to learn about gluten-free products. It is actually quite a large basket full of goodies from a wide variety of gluten-free companies, as well as helpful information for new patients and support group information.
How do you get one of these packages?
If you or your child has been biopsy-diagnosed with Celiac Disease within the last 3 months, and you live in the United States, then call the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center at (773) 702-7593.
Let others know about this, as it is a great service for those who are newly diagnosed.
