New Year. New Name. New Opportunities.

By Kanaaz Pereira

In their continuing pursuit for cure, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has announced that the foundation has changed its name to Beyond Celiac. “For the past decade, our primary goal was to increase awareness to ensure the undiagnosed could receive an accurate diagnosis and reclaim their lives and health,” said Alice Bast, President and CEO of Beyond Celiac. “As we listened to the community, it was clear their unmet needs extend far beyond raising awareness. By changing our name to Beyond Celiac, we’re emphasizing the evolution of our programs, services and mission to ensure that celiac disease is known as a serious, genetic autoimmune disease needing an early diagnosis and better treatment options.”

The new name and brand, reflect the evolution of the organization from its early focus on awareness to its expanded role today in increasing the rate of diagnosis, improving care for the community and expanding research of new treatments, ultimately to find a cure for celiac disease by 2025.
