The Celiac Disease Program at Children’s National Health System invites you to Shine a Light on Celiac Disease Dec. 18 – Dec. 31 from the comfort of your own home. Yes, you read that correctly – you’re cordially invited to stay at home!
This year, our Celiac Disease Program decided to expand our one-night event to one whole week of awareness and support. So this year, you can sit on your couch with a bowl of popcorn and a gluten-free beer and Shine a Light on Celiac Disease from your home – no babysitters or swanky outfits required!
In 2017, thanks to the contributions of our supporters, we were able to build a digital app that already has more than 3,500 active users, launch the Gluten-Free Guide Podcast that now has 30 episodes streaming, and open the Multi-Disciplinary Celiac Disease Clinic, which allows newly diagnosed patients and their families to be seen by our medical director, nutritionist, psychologist, neurologist, and education team in a single appointment.
And with the continued generosity of our community of supporters, we can do even more to help kids with celiac disease in 2018 and beyond!
Celiac Disease afflicts 3 million people across the United States, and the number of children affected by celiac disease and gluten sensitivities continues to grow. With your help, we can Shine a Light on Celiac Disease this December and continue to develop new education programs and therapies for kids and families in our community, across the nation, and around the world!
