Join us for an exciting online event featuring world-renowned researchers and drug-developers to learn about the latest in celiac disease innovations. Hear from congressional representatives and patient advocates about actionable strategies you can implement immediately to accelerate change. Attend one or more educational sessions or stay all day and leave prepared to make your voice heard as a valuable partner in research and advocate for the celiac disease community.

This event has passed and we look forward to sharing information about the next Patient Education & Advocacy Summit soon. Please visit to stay updated about our current advocacy efforts and how you can get involved.

The 2021 Virtual Patient Education and Advocacy Summit is funded by a PCORI Engagement Award to Convene Patients with Celiac Disease to Improve Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR).
