It's time for Spring News and Notes! In this lively episode, Mike and Cam share some entertaining letters. A listener who had a similar hospital experience as Mike, news about a blood pressure medication that causes celiac-type symptoms, and some clarity about "In and Out Burger" gluten free offerings. Plus, they have a comical debate over a curious way to label donuts--are they gluten-less or do they just have less gluten? You be the judge!

Mike and Cam welcome back attorney Mary Vargas, for part 2 of their compelling, and at times very personal conversation. In this episode, Mary shares her struggles helping her newly diagnosed son navigate college with celiac disease, which Mary has dealt with, ironically, in her own litigation of a case against a university. Along the way they share important tips for what many parents of young adults heading off to college know to be a daunting process. They wrap up by talking a little bit about other institutions that can be challenging for those with celiac including hospital stays, nursing homes, and long term care facilities.
