My sister, Rachel, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when she was five years old, and has lived with the disease for nine years. She's not the only one; in the United States, as many as 3 million people have Celiac Disease, and as high as 80% of that number remain undiagnosed becuase of a lack of physician awareness. Rachel is one of the most special people in my life, so when I came up with my idea for Grad Challenge, I wanted to connect my love for her with my pride in my community's strong support of gluten-free products, as well as my interest in pursuing a career in medicine.
