Danna Korn is also the author of Living Gluten-Free For Dummies, Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Living, and Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Children . Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she speaks frequently to health care professionals, celiacs, parents of celiacs, parents of autistic kids involved in a gluten-free/casein-free dietary intervention program, and others on or considering a gluten-free diet. She has been invited twice to be a presenter at the International Symposium on Celiac Disease. Danna has been researching celiac disease since her son, Tyler, was diagnosed with the condition in 1991. That same year, she founded R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families of children on a glutenfree diet. Today, Danna leads more than 100 chapters of R.O.C.K. worldwide. She is a consultant to retailers, manufacturers, testing companies, dietitians, nutritionists, and people newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance and celiac disease. She also coordinates the International Walk/Run for Celiac Disease each May in San Diego. Connie Sarros is a pioneer in writing gluten-free cookbooks for celiacs, beginning at a time when few people had even heard of the disease. She has written five cookbooks, a "Newly Diagnosed Survivial Kit," and made a DVD that covers all you need to know about gluten-free cooking. She writes weekly menus for people with additional dietary restrictions and puts out two monthly newsletters. Connie is also a staff writer for other celiac newsletters, including having a monthly "Ask the Cook" column. In addition to being a featured speaker at national celiac conferences, Connie travels the country speaking to celiac and austistic support groups and often meets with dietitians to explain the gluten-free diet.
