Celiac Disease Awareness Month - May 31, 2014

Each day this month, I will be posting something about Celiac Disease.

Day 31:

Did you know that most physicians learned during medical school that celiac disease was so rare that it was unlikely they would ever see a patient throughout their career?

The purpose of Celiac Disease Awareness Month is to spread awareness. This information is most certainly known to be wrong today. It is important that awareness be increased with individuals so they can advocate for themselves, but also with doctors so they can diagnose individuals quickly and correctly.

What did you do to raise awareness this month?
