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

Recruitment Notice!

Ads by Google:

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 kxc19@psu.edu. Informed consent forms will be mailed/emailed to you and a phone interview will be arranged at your convenience.

As always, Celiac.com 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.

Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.)

I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later.... I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!

Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why? There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses. Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed. My hubby is not. Hi...

I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmeti...
