Branch Leadership Team
2014 Gluten Intolerance Group of Asheville
Support Group Meetings
We have a meeting NEXT WEEK!!!!
April 22, 6-8pm at Carolina Day School (directions below)
We have a GREAT SPEAKER too. She is a good friend of mine and will entertain you well. Please let’s have a good turnout!
Here is her information:
If you want to laugh, Sara Vollmer will help you! Sara Vollmer was diagnosed as an 11 month old child with Celiac Disease and her parents were told she would grow out of it. So, she was back on regular food, but sick most of her life. She began searching for answers at 27 years old and 3 years later was finally diagnosed with Dermatitis Herpetiformis in April 2007.
Sara is the Director of Social Programs at the Gluten Intolerance Group. Getting this disease has empowered her to educate 1 person at a time. Empowerment to find good in every day and when those eating gluten free educate themselves often, the gluten free diet becomes less overwhelming every day. Being gluten free isn’t the worst thing and with humor and a good support system, it becomes easier to feel less “delicate.”
