Come on down to the Beyond Celiac Community Summit!

August 15, 2023

Join Beyond Celiac and fellow gluten-free community members at the Beyond Celiac Community Summit this September 30 in Greenwich, Connecticut. For our inaugural Summit, the theme is game shows, so get ready to spin that wheel and play to win. We’ll have all your favorites covered, from Wheel of Gluten-Free Fortune to Celiac Family Feud! This is your chance to come on down and join the gluten-free fun!

This full-day event includes gluten-free meals, games, and expert speakers. The schedule is packed with panelists from various fields, including registered dietitians, gastroenterologists, and more. Our speakers will give you the inside scoop on celiac disease, so you’ll be a Jeopardy-level champion when it comes to talking about this serious autoimmune disease. And don’t worry, we won’t be asking any tricky questions like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, we just want to make sure you have all the knowledge and resources you need to live your best gluten-free life.
