R.O.C.K. Recap

28 Jun

Monday night I had the pleasure of speaking at the R.O.C.K (Raising Our Celiac Kids) meeting.  These meetings take place at The Plainview Old-Bethpage Library in Nassau County, New York.  The room, usually filled with delicious gluten free goodies for everyone to taste, provides an open forum for mothers and fathers to ask questions about Celiac, share new products, new restaurants and most importantly creates a support system. Monday night we were introduced Tanya’s Gluten Free Pretzel bites and let me just tell you they were AMAZING.

Randi Abertelli, the Nassau County leader asked me to speak with the group about my experiences with Celiac Disese while attending college.  (Go Penn State!)  I was happy to speak to the parents about the changes I have seen from 2008 until now at my own university.  Penn State food services is nothing short of amazing.  They completely went above and beyond their call of duty to ensure I was well fed which allowed me to concentrate on my schoolwork rather than concentrate on my dietary needs.   Please feel free to check out this great article written by Michele Marchetti and this one written by Katie Ross for Gluten Free Delights Magazine . Hopefully by reading this you will have a better understanding of the positive impact Penn State Food Services had during my four years away at college.

For those of you living in the Long Island area be sure to check out http://www.rockli.com/.  This is a GREAT place for you to meet other parents who have children going through the same thing!  Most of all these children are so lucky to have parents that are caring and changing the meaning of Celiac for future generations.
