Alice Bast, CEO of Beyond CeliacWe are excited to announce that Beyond Celiac CEO Alice Bast has won the Trailblazer Award from Philadelphia Magazine.This award recognizes the immense progress made by Alice and her team since the organization was founded in 2003. With the help of the community, Alice and Beyond Celiac have been working to help people with celiac disease to live better, longer, as we push for better treatment options and eventually, a cure.

Despite being honored to receive this recognition, Alice tells Philadelphia Magazinethat she’s not doing what she does for the sake of being considered a trailblazer. She says, “I’m not doing this to be a pioneer. I’m not doing it to be innovative. I saw the need and we, the patients, have got to have a voice at the table.”
