Today’s podcast is about empowering young children with celiac disease to own their celiac disease through reading. Author Kaitlin Puccio is in the studio to talk with us about her book, The Adventures of Celia Kaye and her mission to encourage children with celiac disease not to see their condition as a limitation, rather as an inspiration. Her book is about a little girl has celiac disease and believes she needs to hide it from her friends. She goes to great lengths to keep her diagnosis a secret by becoming a storyteller.
Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
