Elite Colleges Treat Gluten-free Students to Exclusive Eateries

Celiac.com 07/13/2015 - Gluten-free students at two elite liberal arts colleges in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are now able to enjoy exclusive gluten-free dining areas.

Photo: CC--Montgomery County PlanningBoth Haverford College and Bryn Mawr College have created dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining areas for their students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, according to a report by Campus Reform.

Bryn Mawr opened their gluten-free dining area in 2013, and Haverford followed in 2014.

The exclusive eating areas are the brainchild of Bernie Chung-Templeton, executive director of dining services at both schools.

Each of the gluten-free dining areas has signage clearly warning students to refrain from bringing in food from outside, including the main school cafeteria.

What do you think? Do students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance deserve dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining options?

This is such good news. I hope that this concept takes off and spreads around the country to all colleges and universities. For those of us who must be gluten free a safe place to eat is not a luxury but a necessity. Thank you for sharing this article.

I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis. I was put on a steroid inhaler recently. I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in. You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac. Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.

You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.

If I was the big guy, there's no way I would have to wait 3 and a half weeks for a test lol. My GI doc never recommended the antibody test. He said doing it with the scope was the only sure way to know. Does anybody know if I should eat a little gluten the day before my test to see if I will get an accurate enough test? Or will it not matter, once the damage is done it's done?

Unfortunately you need to keep eating gluten until all celiac testing is complete.

That explains EVERYTHING. I had Aetna PPO about 4 years ago, and it was horrible. Absolutely horrible, and expensive. They jacked up the price the year Obamacare came out, from $550 a month (family) to $725 a month and I got stuck paying it for a year. I dropped them like a rock when open season came around. They are a greedy and worthless insurance company.
