Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 09, 2011
Selected out of over 6.7 million registered .INFO websites from around the world, GlutenFreeHelp.info has been recognized as a second place finalist in the “Best .INFO Website Awards Program of 2010” by Afilias, the registry operator of .INFO.
Award-winning children’s author, Tina Turbin, launched the website in 2009 as part of her gluten-free advocacy efforts, and the site has already become one of the premier resources for the celiac and gluten-sensitive community. The website offers cutting-edge and easy-to-understand news, research, tips and shares Turbin’s celebrated gluten-free recipes and reviews of numerous gluten-free products and companies.
Tina Turbin is best-known for her acclaimed illustrated children’s titles, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, DREAMS and DVDs as well as the recipient of a long list of prestigious awards, including the iParenting Media Award and the Mom’s Choice Award. Apple featured Turbin’s app for the iPad and continues to be a top in recommendations by Apple soon after the author’s publisher launched a groundbreaking Danny the Dragon app for deaf children with iStoryTime, the iPhone App Developer for DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon,” featuring sign language interpretation for the first book in Turbin’s series, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy.
Turbin launched GlutenFreeHelp.info in order to help raise awareness for celiac disease and the gluten-free community, which the author calls her “undeniable cause.” After years of struggling to find the cause of her painful symptoms, going from doctor to doctor without an answer, Turbin was finally diagnosed with celiac disease after she took matters into her own hands by researching her health issues herself. There is a large percentage of the U.S. population affected by celiac disease and only a handful diagnosed, Turbin wanted to help increase celiac diagnosis and make the gluten-free lifestyle easier. Uniting with MDs, nutritionists, surgeons, and other professionals, GlutenFreeHelp.info has become one of the highest-regarded in the celiac and gluten-free community.
“It’s quite an honor for my GlutenFreeHelp.info website to have received this award,” Turbin says. “I am amazed at the site’s quick rise in popularity in such a short period of time. The gluten-free community will no doubt benefit greatly from this recognition!”
