Our Celiac Program is working on an exciting project to measure the potential for gluten contamination at school. We have set up a study to measure the amount of gluten found in everyday school supplies and determine how much gluten is transferred to hands of students and surfaces like tables. Additionally, we will measure different ways of washing gluten off of student's hands after touching these supplies.
Here's the catch...The participants can not have celiac disease. Since we have no data showing how much gluten is potentially involved in these supplies, we do not want to knowingly expose children with celiac disease to them. We are hoping we can find 30 siblings or friends who do not have celiac to help us with this very important project.
Interested parties can sign up for a shift below. Any questions please contact Joyana at JMcMahon@childrensnational.org.
