If you or a gluten-free loved one live in or near Chattanooga, Tennessee, a new support group has been formed that may help you. The support group, Gluten Free Chattanooga, meets for the first time Tuesday, August 25th, at 7 p.m. in the Thompson Room of Erlanger Hospital. Here is the group’s page on Facebook: GF Chattanooga. The mission of this support group is:

to make a positive difference in the lives of those living with celiac disease or gluten intolerance through education, support and the opportunity to interact with fellow celiacs.

The support group attempts to give people newly diagnosed with celiac disease all the information they need; they also want to encourage doctors to test more patients for celiac disease.  To speak with the group leader, Kelly Brexler, call (423) 664-2520 or email group supported Stacy Johnson at glutenfreechatt AT yahoo DOT com. Original article in The Chattanoogan about the group here.

While you’re in Chattanooga, check out the gluten-free bakery and chocolate shop, A Bountful Harvest! It’s at 1101 Hixson Pike Suite L in a shopping center, The Corner at Riverview.

Good luck on all your gluten-free adventures.
