“The Great Explainer” of Celiac and Gluten-Free Information
NFCA Healthcare Relations Manager Kristin Voorhees is featured in the Fall 2011 cover story in Expression, Emerson College’s alumni magazine. The article, titled “The Great Explainers” puts celiac disease – and Kristin’s work to clear up misconceptions – at the forefront.
The story addresses a key problem in celiac awareness: while attention to celiac and the gluten-free diet has increased, so has the threat of misinformation.
“A deluge of information does not guarantee… that the messages the public receives about gluten-free foods are accurate or that individuals know how to make the best food choices,” the article notes.
That’s where Kristin comes in, to “separate the wheat from the chaff,” as the writer puts it.
The staff is thrilled to see Kristin recognized for her important work at NFCA, and for bringing celiac awareness to her fellow alumni! We encourage everyone in the celiac and gluten-free community to share this article and encourage their friends to get the facts straight about gluten-free.
