Recently, I ran into Bernice Hettesheimer at Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s Endoscopy section.  For those of you who don’t know her, Bernice is a retired endoscopy nurse who now runs the Jersey Shore Celiac Support Group.

She writes about the Top 10 Reasons to Join Jersey Shore Celiac Support Group:

  1. It’s Free
  2. It’s Fun
  3. It’s socially engaging
  4. It helps to build a network of others who are dealing with the same problems
  5. It can help you get motivated and stay motivated as the gluten free diet is a life long commitment
  6. It teaches new ways to cope
  7. It reassures you about the future as we have current educational speakers and handouts
  8. You can try new Gluten Free products before buying them
  9. It makes you aware of community services available such as Celiac Awareness Day
  10. We are a chapter of The Celiac Support Association (a National Organization) with all of the support they provide including a website and a Facebook page for those who use Facebook

Anyone who has Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity is welcome to participate.  My contact information is Bernice Hettesheimer, or call (732) 869-1162 to find out more
