We are thrilled to share some exciting news! Beyond Celiac and the Beyond Celiac Community Summit were featured on the 3rd Hour of TODAY. This incredible moment took place on Monday, October 2, when co-host Dylan Dreyer recounted her experience attending and speaking at our Summit on September 30.
During the segment, 3rd Hour of TODAY’s Dylan Dreyer, whose young son Calvin was recently diagnosed with celiac disease, spoke passionately about the recent Summit. She emphasized the importance of the event in bringing together members of the community. TODAY featured images from the summit on screen, capturing the spirit of unity and support that permeated the entire gathering. It was a truly inspiring moment, showcasing the strength and resilience of our community. It was also an amazing opportunity to spread awareness about celiac disease to the show’s millions of viewers!
The Beyond Celiac Community Summit was a tremendous success, allowing attendees to share their experiences and find comfort in knowing they are not alone in their journey. The day was a testament to the power of solidarity and understanding, reinforcing our commitment to supporting one another in our fight against celiac disease.
Dylan Dreyer has teamed up with Beyond Celiac to raise awareness and support our mission of accelerating research for treatments and a cure for celiac disease. Being the keynote speaker at our Summit was one of her first projects as a Beyond Celiac partner.
Next up, Dylan will emcee the Step Beyond Celiac 5K in the Boston suburb of Waltham, Massachusetts, on October 14. People interested in participating in either event can visit StepBeyondCeliac.org for more information.
“I am thrilled to be joining forces with Beyond Celiac to make a difference in the lives of those living with celiac disease,” said Dreyer. “When my son Calvin was diagnosed, we got some answers, but I also got firsthand perspective on the struggles families face every day. By raising awareness and supporting research efforts, we can bring much-needed attention to this condition and work towards finding better treatments and, ultimately, a cure.”
Through this partnership, Dylan and Beyond Celiac aim to break down barriers, promote understanding, and catalyze critical research endeavors that will pave the way for better treatments and improved quality of life for those living with celiac disease.
