The Celiac Disease Foundation Gluten-Free EXPO has been cancelled for June 2020. California public health officials have issued a policy restricting non-essential gatherings to protect public health in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Amidst the uncertainty of the future, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Celiac Disease Foundation’s Gluten-Free EXPO scheduled for June 13 – June 14, 2020, and not reschedule this year.
We are greatly appreciative of your support of our Gluten-Free EXPO. This crisis, as terrible and as disruptive as it is, will eventually pass. When it does, even while it is unfolding, celiac disease patients are and will still be in need of treatments and a cure. We must, therefore, persist in our work: funding research, advocating on Capitol Hill and NIH for increased research investments, and improving diagnostics. There are 3 million Americans who are counting on us to persevere and to be successful, even under these circumstances. And we will. That is our mission. It has not changed.
