HOW TO BE A CELIACTIVIST
Did you know that most people need to see a message seven times to remember it?

500,000: That’s the number of people diagnosed with celiac disease who have a story that can provide the clues that could lead to a treatment and cure. This year, we launched a unique online community, Go Beyond Celiac, that collects and compiles these stories from people with celiac disease and their caregivers about their journeys before, during and after diagnosis. Together, we can ensure that researchers understand our community’s concerns so they find solutions that meet our needs, and ultimately, find a cure. Every story shared brings us one step closer to a cure.
