Specific issue that will be discussed include:
- What is the National Lunch program and what information about the program is relevant to those wanting to buy gluten-free lunches at school?
- Tips on working with your SFA (School Food Authority), School Nurse, Nutritionist and Physician.
- What is a diet prescription? Why is it important?

The Discussion Continues... Transition from Public School to College:
