Governors Sign Awareness Proclamations

Resident celiacs have stepped forward this month to help educate their state's top executive. The result? Governors John Lynch (New Hampshire), Martin O'Malley (Maryland), Ted Kulongoski (Oregon), and Sonny Perdue (Georgia) have each proclaimed 'May' as Celiac Awareness Month in their respective states. Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon has made a similar declaration. These pronouncements further demonstrate that celiac disease is a condition which merits greater attention.

Thank you, Governors and Mayor Dixon!

Rep. Lowey Bill Educates Members of Congress

Food labeling champion, Rep. Nita Lowey (NY) has re-introduced the National Celiac Awareness legislation. As in the past, this measure is used to educate her colleagues about celiac disease and the issues faced by those with the genetic condition. Write your representative to support H.Con.Res. 110.
