Gluten-Free Globetrotter LIVE at the Beyond Celiac Community Summit

I am so excited to announce that I am a panelist at the 2023 Beyond Celiac Community Summit. I am honored to share the stage with top celiac disease advocates, experts, researchers, and advocates. I am most excited to finally meet Dr. Ritu Verma, a pediatric gastroenterologist and celiac mom, in person. Tickets are on sale now.
