The application is called "Track Your Celiac" and is available for both Apple and Android users and would be available to members of the organization.

What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac Disease (CD) is a genetic, multi-system, autoimmune disorder where the body reacts to gluten and other prolamines in wheat (e.g. durum, kamut, spelt), rye and barley. Gluten consumption causes damage to the absorptive surface of the small intestine and can result in malnutrition, anemia, nutritional deficiencies and an increased risk of other autoimmune diseases and some cancers of the gut. Every person is different and there may be no symptoms, but damage is still being done. More information can be found at the Canadian Celiac Association website.
