Beyond Celiac – Take #60forCeliac
It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.
We invite you to take #60forCeliac by watching and sharing a Beyond Celiac one-minute video that highlights what it’s like to live with celiac disease and to have the challenge of self-managing a serious genetic autoimmune disease. Here’s your chance to let your friends and family on social media know that, though they may not be able to see it, celiac disease impacts your life more than what meets the eye.
Sign up to receive research news and announcements. As celiac disease research advances and evolves, Beyond Celiac wants to ensure that our community remains up to date and aware of new and ongoing research opportunities. You can do so by signing up for the Beyond Celiac Research Opt-In. Our hope is that, through research, we can overcome the day-to-day challenges that people face and move the community beyond celiac disease and towards a cure.
It’s our goal at Beyond Celiac to move beyond the gluten-free fad to make sure that our foods and medicines are safe. We push for research to go beyond for more treatment options and pathways to a cure. We go beyond the social stigma, isolation, inconvenience and the fear of food to effective, supported disease management. Formerly known as the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, Beyond Celiac advances widespread understanding of celiac disease as a serious genetic autoimmune condition. Take #60forCeliac and help us make a brighter future for all of us.
