On May 16, in recognition of International Celiac Disease Awareness Day, the Celiac Disease Foundation supports schools and students nationwide for our annual Celiac Strong Day.   

The Foundation offers multiple ways for the community to highlight those with celiac disease on this special day, including:  

  • Suggesting that students wear blue on May 16. 
  • Encouraging children to get creative to help educate their peers by giving a classroom presentation, making videos, and creating their own celiac disease awareness materials to share with their school and class—whatever they feel inspired to do!  
  • Sending educational brochures and email text about celiac disease and our School Support Sessions that our community and schools can share with all staff and parents. 
  • Partnering with our sponsors to provide schools or classrooms with sample-size packages of tasty gluten-free snacks. 

The Celiac Disease Foundation is pleased to provide these resources to help members of our community raise awareness of celiac disease in May.
