So what's with gluten anyway?
If you're reading this, you probably already know that many experience relief from chronic health problems [i.e. back pain, brain fog, bloating, fatigue, etc. etc.] and CHOOSE to go gluten free. Others unfortunately are abruptly forced to abstain from gluten because of Celiac Disease or other major health conditions. Whichever the case, GFHLX is an amazing way to connect with like-minded people, products, and services in our community and beyond! You'll learn how to live a healthier lifestyle - whether that's through nutrition, sleep, exercise or stress relief.

"I have always loved art - as a form of self-expression & stress relief. Living in an area rich with local artists, I want to give them a platform to show off their work and make a statement about the changes they want to see happen in our community concerning healthcare," remarks AnGela Reinhard. "I hope this opens the way for a conversation on how we can all work together for a healthier future."

Submissions acceptance dates to be announced. The contest will be judged both by the attendees of GFHLX as well as a panelist of judges. Winners will be chosen on April 21st at GFHLX.
