Your Des Moines Metro Hy-Vee Dietitians partner with organizations in the community to help better serve the needs of our customers. We choose to partner and support these organizations because they have the same vision we do when it comes to health and wellness.
When living a healthy gluten-free life, one outstanding group in Iowa aligns with our vision for helping those with Celiac Disease, the Central Iowa Celiac Connection (CICC). When a newly diagnosed customer schedules an appointment with one of the Des Moines Metro Hy-Vee dietitians, we also connect them with this group for continued support for gluten-free resources and to put them in touch with others living with the disease.
If you or a family member are living with Celiac Disease, we encourage you to connect with this outstanding support group in central Iowa. The Central Iowa Celiac Connection (CICC) is a member of the United States Celiac Sprue Association, meeting locally to offer information, education and support services to persons living with celiac disease and Dermatitis Herpetiformis.
Your Des Moines Metro Area Hy-Vee dietitians will be happy to help you make this connection and recommend becoming a member because CICC, with almost 1000 families on the member list, holds Gluten-Free meetings and pot lucks every 2-3 months for members then sends a newsletter with recipes from the meeting to all of its members.
A support group is one of the best steps a person with Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity can make because of the following reasons:
• Children’s Program
• Great Gluten-Free safe food
• Access to Gluten-Free newsletters
• Access to many Gluten-Free recipes
