The Educational, Dietary and Social Experiences of College Students with Celiac Disease

Recruitment Notice!

College students are invited to volunteer for a study conducted for research purposes and approved by the Pennsylvania State University. The purpose of the study is to determine what educational, dietary, and social experiences college students are having as a result of their celiac disease and what accommodations colleges and universities are making to meet the needs of these students. The study will also help to determine what recommendations college students have for schools so that higher education personnel might better meet the needs of individuals with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Any college student (community college, four-year college or university) with celiac disease will be asked to participate in a 15-20 minute phone interview. By sharing their experiences college students may provide higher education personnel with information that will allow them to better serve the needs of students with celiac disease.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Kay Chick, principal investigator and Professor of Curriculum and Instruction by email at Informed consent forms will be mailed/emailed to you and a phone interview will be arranged at your convenience.

As always, welcomes your comments (see below).

During my regular college years, my celiac was unrecognized, untreated, and unconfirmed by any such study, so it is therefore encouraging to see such a study being conducted somewhere. Given that President Kennedy suffered celiac, a similar study ought go forth at his Alma mater, ie, Harvard, as well--at the very least.
