Family Health & Resilience

The team is investigating the impact of celiac disease on family process. We are particularly interested in learning of what have been resilient processes that have families utilized to adapt to a gluten-free diet. Utilizing a mixed method approach we are recruiting families who have a child diagnosed with celiac disease to interview and learn from their experience. This line of research directed by Gonzalo Bacigalupe intends on generating strength-oriented approaches to aid families confronted with dietary changes. As a result, this line of research should be the start of research that support families confronted with chronic illness.
