In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.

In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.

I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

Gut Reaction is a one-hour radio documentary with The Gluten-Free Mall as a major underwriter, produced by Richard Paul for Public Radio with additional funding from the Celiac Sprue Association. Several stations across the USA have already aired it, and some got such a great listener response that they intend to air it again. You can help us spread the word about celiac disease in your community in a very simple way—we urge you to contact the program director of your local Public Radio station to request that they air Gut Reaction in your community. To locate the local director of your Public Radio station please click here:
https://sgms.cpb.org/Public/PubPhoneBook.asp
and use the info at the bottom of this article to fill in the form, which looks like this:

SEARCH CRITERIA:
First Name: Can be found in the list at the bottom of this article.
Last Name: Can be found in the list at the bottom of this article.
City: You can leave it blank if you dont know.
State: (2 Character Postal Code): Can be found in the list at the bottom of this article.
Entity Name: 4 digit radio call tag - Can be found in the list at the bottom of this article.
Entity Type: Radio Station (select this).

Once you have the contact information for the director of your Public Radio station, follow this advice from Richard Paul, the shows producer:

Its best if you reach the program director directly and not leave a message on the listener-comment line and not send an email to the listener-comment email box.

When you contact the program director, tell him or her that you want the station to play the show Gut Reaction. Dont have folks say You have to do this. Just, We want you to know that theres a community here that thinks this is important.

It is vitally important to emphasize that Celiac Disease effects 1-in-133 Americans, though only 1-in-4,700 are ever diagnosed. And immediately after saying that, remind them of public radios public service mission. Tell them that it would be an enormous public service to notify the undiagnosed Celiacs in their listening audience. This point should be made strongly.

Tell them that there will be a satellite feed of the show on January 7th and that the show is available right now via PRX (the Public Radio Exchange). Tell them that if theyre not a member of PRX, they can get the show at this web site – www.rlpaulproductions.com/interviews

Tell them that she show is newscast compatible and that is has breaks at 20 and 40 (they will know what that means and they will consider it important).

But EMPHASIZE the public service value of getting the word out to undiagnosed Celiacs. That will be the real drive-it-home point.

If they ask how you found out about the show, mention how wired-together we Celiacs are -- how we share information with each other by email and so forth because doctors still know so little about the disease. You might suggest that because there is a large Celiac Community in their area, theres the chance that you could work together with the station on other get-the-word-out projects. Maybe if they have a daily talk show, people could come on and talk about CD. Something like that.

Anyway, I hope you can get folks together to get the word out.
Thanks,
Richard Paul
