Many don't even know that they feel bad! Maybe they are suffering from: daily stomachaches and/or fatigue and/or difficulty concentrating and/or headaches and/or irritability, and on and on. If that's all a child knows, how could he/she know they could be feeling better?

GIG ShorelineEast recently launched a new program that will help train school nurses to understand signs and symptoms of celiac and nonceliac gluten sensitivity.
It took one person to deliver this baby (Sybil, founder of GIG ShorelineEast) -
but it will take a village to raise it. Let's do this thing!
Just by donating a copy to your local school,
