National Celiac Disease Awareness Day is Today (September 13th)!


Portrait of Samuel Gee. Artist: Charles Vigor - circa 1900

Celiac.com 09/13/2010 - Happy National Celiac Disease Awareness Day! Here at Celiac.com we sometimes forget this special day because to us every day is Celiac Awareness Day!

For those who don't know, each September 13th is the official "National Celiac Disease Awareness Day" due to United States Senate Resolution (S.Res. 563), which was adopted in 2006.

September 13th was chosen for this important day because it is Dr. Samuel Gee’s birthday—who was the first medical doctor to discover a link between celiac disease and a person's diet, way back in the late 1800's. He once said "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet."

Celiac.com hereby proclaims that forthwith on this day EVERYONE should eat gluten-free—and everyone should also be sure to hug a celiac! Oh, and don't forget to give thanks to Dr. Gee before eating that gluten-free food—after all, if it weren't for him we would probably all be pretty miserable right now!
