What is Celiac Disease Foundation U?
Celiac Disease Foundation U is a nationwide college chapter program dedicated to fostering a supportive community for students, faculty and alumni affected by celiac disease and other gluten-related sensitivities. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for colleagues to connect and share not only their favorite restaurants and products, but also their story. We believe that no student should have to stand alone, which is why Celiac Disease Foundation created its program with the individual in mind, just for U.
The team at Celiac Disease Foundation U guides students through the process of starting chapters and planning events, while connecting them with other college students across the country. In addition, team members at Celiac Disease Foundation U maintain regular contact with college chapters to address all possible questions and concerns. We work closely with student leaders in order to help each club grow and reach its full potential.
