The face of celiac disease.... 

Found this item in the October 31 Celiac.com newsletter. I think it does help put a human face on an ailment people may have heard of but don't know much about:

Mrs. United States 2011: Shannon Ford Hopes to Raise Celiac Disease Awareness

One thing I find interesting is that she probably has to attend a multitude of banquets and other events that have pre-determined menus, and usually there is no room for special meals at these things. So she would be raising awareness if those in charge of food accommodate her needs. It's always a little awkward to attend a dinner and watch everyone else eat what is served while you nibble on a protein bar you had stashed in your purse.
