Local gluten-free support group seeking new leadership

See also

The Gluten Intolerance Group of Atlanta (GIG of Atlanta) is looking for someone, or a couple of people, who are willing to step into leadership roles for the support group. This local group has been in existence for more than 10 years providing support and information for those who are following the gluten-free diet and to their family members/significant others.

I served as the program chair of this group for five years, but I stepped down in 2013 because I wasn't able to offer the same time commitment as I had given in the past. Now, more than ever, this group is needed as the number of people diagnosed with celiac disease, or non-celiac gluten sensitivity continues to increase. Transitioning to the gluten-free diet takes patience and a lot of research, which are tools the support group can provide.

If you gained any help from attending their meetings, or if you see this as a worthwhile effort, then please attend the January 18 meeting at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite in the main auditorium from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. The meeting is an open forum to gather input as to what you would like to gain from the group, what you have gained in the past, or even if you want the group to continue.

Without a leadership team, GIG of Atlanta will cease to exist. If you know of someone, or if you would be willing to help, please send an email to Sarah Jones at: sejonesga@gmail.com.
