At our next Wilson Gluten Free Support Group meeting I'll be showing this short documentary called Generation Gluten Free!
From the website for the video:
"About the Film
Generation Gluten-Free takes viewers inside the Celiac Disease community providing them with a first hand look at how it evolved from a grassroots movement in the early 1990s to the strong, blossoming community that it is today.
The 42 minute documentary, which was filmed over a two week period during the summer of 2005, focuses on a special group of people who have changed the face of Celiac Disease in the United States. Through their hard work and dedication, the individuals in this film created the resources that have revolutionized day to day life for Americans with Celiac Disease.
Whether it was founding a support group, developing gluten-free products, transforming gluten-free dining in restaurants, or raising awareness by sharing their Celiac story, this special group helped put Celiac Disease on the map.
Generation Gluten-Free features members of the Celiac Disease community including:
*Dr. Peter Green, Director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University
*George and Ceil Chookazian, Owners of Foods by George
*Beth Hillson, Founder of the Gluten-Free Pantry
*The Founders and Members of the Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group
*Joseph Pace, Chef/Owner of Risotteria in New York City"
We will have a discussion following the film and talk about how celiac disease has impacted our families & how our journey's have compared to those on the video.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday Sept. 11th, 2010 from 3-5pm at the Wilson County Public Library!
