This week's podcast is about an issue we see frequently in the Celiac Clinic at Children's National. Getting access to safe gluten-free food in schools. For the last 10 years, our Celiac Program has worked with patients and families to set up accommodations in schools and there is a huge range in the availability and accommodations offered in the school districts local to us here in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia, but also around the country. Listen in as Vanessa and Joyana discuss gluten-free food in schools and how to gain access to options for your child through setting up a 504 plan.
Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
