Support for Families With Celiac Disease at Seattle Children's
For parents of children who suffer from celiac disease, eating gluten free food is just a small part of keeping their kids healthy. Now a new program is supporting families dealing with this diagnosis. Seattle Children's has developed a Celiac Disease Program where patients can connect with doctors and dieticians as well as other families to share stories. "We think there's an opportunity to organize care much better and develop better resources for families and helped develop community going forward," said Dr. Dale Lee, gastroenterologist and celiac disease program director.
