Do you know an adolescent with celiac disease? The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is currently conducting a research study for teenagers with celiac disease and their parents, to better understand the feelings and coping skills of adolescent patients with celiac disease and how this affects their adherence to a gluten-free diet later in life. The primary goal is to use this information to improve adherence to a gluten-free diet for these patients as they get older. If your child is between the ages of 12 and 18 and is a celiac disease patient at The University of Chicago Medical Center, he or she may qualify.
Parents should contact Celiac Center Research Coordinator, Diane McKiernan, by phone at 773-702-3572 or by e-mail at [email protected] for more information.
