When Vanessa was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004, going to college on a gluten-free diet was a difficult experience. She remembers the extremely limited options available at her university and how hard it was to find safe food. But, 14 years later, times have definitely changed and now colleges and universities are developing outstanding gluten-free programs to keep their students with celiac disease well fed and very culinarily happy! To talk about going to college on a gluten-free diet and how the University of Connecticut has set up a comprehensive gluten-free program, we've got Robert Landolphi in the studio. After hearing what he has to say, you'll want to go back to college just to eat in his gluten-free dining halls!
