In the name of women’s health, Beyond Celiac and other mission-driven organizations have come together to educate and empower women within a single, trusted entity.
While women tend to be the “chief healthcare officers” of their households, they often don’t prioritize their own health. In fact, over 60% of women admit that they procrastinate on their health, with the leading reason being that they spend more time managing the health of others in their family. Meanwhile, during the global pandemic over 33% of women with major health issues (such as heart disease and diabetes) admit to delaying or canceling their doctor appointments or screenings.
Women are under tremendous pressure in today’s fast-paced society, but the consequences of neglecting one’s health are dismal. With these realities in mind, the Know Where to Go, Know What to Do coalition was created to help women identify reputable organizations that provide resources, support, and education, and thus simplifying a path to improved health.
Beyond Celiac is proud be a part of this coalition alongside like-minded organizations. As the only celiac disease advocacy organization in the coalition, Beyond Celiac has the opportunity to reach women who may not be aware that celiac disease is a serious genetic autoimmune disease that can affect fertility, bone health and more.
“Beyond Celiac is very excited to collaborate with this remarkable group of organizations,” notes Claire Baker, Sr. communications director at Beyond Celiac. “While celiac disease does not impact only women, the consequences to a woman’s health if celiac disease goes undiagnosed can be devastating.”
Women can visit Know Where to Go, Know What To Do to find hospitals that meet the highest standards of robust criteria, including clinical performance, patient satisfaction and appropriate accreditations, and to find educational, financial and emotional support from trusted organizations on a variety of health conditions such as bone health, breast cancer, celiac disease, eating disorders, fertility, fibroids, headaches, infant loss, kidney disease, lymphedema, obesity, skin cancer, sleep health and more.
