Did you have any special plans for NCAD? Or is this the first time you’re hearing about this day? The US Senate designated September 13th as National Celiac Awareness Day. Why isn’t it in May during Celiac Awareness Month? Among other things, the resolution states:
“Whereas the connection between celiac disease and diet was first established by Dr. Samuel Gee, who wrote, `if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet’;
Whereas Dr. Samuel Gee was born on September 13, 1839.”
You can read the rest of the resolution here.
