Girl Scout Gold Award Informs the Public about Celiac Disease

Celiac.com 10/22/2014 - For my Girl Scout Gold Award I created a poster, pamphlet, and informational sheets as one part of my project. The poster covers definitions, symptoms, statistics, and links for further information. The pamphlet was created with the title of “Is Eating Gluten-Free Right for Me?” (See Download Link Below). The different parts of the pamphlet include “Having Celiac”, “Having a Gluten Sensitivity”, “Misconceptions about the Gluten Free Diet”, “Being Tested for Celiac”, and “About the Author”. 

Celiac Support Group MeetingThe informational sheets were based off of personal experience and were designed to help people who were already on the diet and looking for help. They were titled “Going to a Party”, “Going out to Dinner”, “Cross Contamination”, and “Hidden Gluten”.

The next part of my project was to share my materials with the public. I contacted many health food stores in order to have a table in front of the store where I could set up my information. I also contacted local libraries. I set up my display at my local library for the month of August. I would go to the library on occasion and stand with the display to talk about my project and answer any questions. I also brought my project to a library in the town next to mine.

I contacted different health food stores, pharmacies, and doctor’s offices to put my pamphlet in. I was able to put a good number of pamphlets in these locations.

To reach out to people who have celiac, I went to two celiac support group meetings and a walk for celiac disease. While at the support group meetings I explained my project, gave out gluten free food samples, and handed out the materials I created. At the walk, I had a table set up where I told people about my project and handed out my materials.

Now inform the Girl Scout cookie maker to make gluten free cookies!

It would be great if Girl Scout cookie makers came out with some gluten free cookies.
