    1. Did you know that Jenna Drew, The GlutenFree Lifestyle Coach, or also known as @GFJenna organized this event to bring celiac awareness to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Miss Drew first became involved with celiac disease working on an internship while attending Penn State University with Lisa Lundy, the SuperAllergy Girl. As luck would have it members of Jenna’s family were dx with the illness and later she was as well. She has not stopped spreading awareness through her positive attitude.

      Jenna’s new project she is working on is Spreading Celiac Awareness on The Open Seas…. Feb 5-7, 2012, on Royal Caribbeans Adventure of the Seas Group Cruise. Won’t you please join us?
