Student Council's Celiac Disease Fundraiser
Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects over 3 million Americans every year. When a person has celiac, if gluten is ingested, even in tiny amounts, it can cause many short and long-term problems in the body. Examples of food with gluten include cakes, cookies, pizza, and cereals.
On September 26th, Dr Anne Lee, a Celiac Disease nutritionist at Columbia University Medical Center, will be talking to the students in grades 3-5.
Student Council will also be selling bracelets for $1.00 during the lunch hours to help raise awareness about celiac disease. All proceeds will go to the Columbia University Medical Center for Celiac Disease Research (https://celiacdiseasecenter.columbia.edu/). Please consider supporting this very worthwhile fundraiser.
