Hear Phyllis Kessler, President, Celiac Disease Foundation South Florida Chapter, talk about the efforts the foundation is making to raise awareness of Celiac and provide resources to those who currently suffer from the disease.
“Celiac Disease Foundation has been raising awareness of this vastly under diagnosed disease for over 20 years. Celiac is one of the most common genetic disorders in the world, yet most people don’t even know what it is. The Balancing Act is a great opportunity to educate viewers about this disease and make them aware of the resources and guidance that CDF provides.”
Over the years, CDF has built a community of patients, families, and healthcare professionals whose combined efforts have helped improve the quality of life for people with Celiac Disease. They have also tirelessly promoted early detection of the disease, which can drastically lower the chances of more severe consequences like osteoporosis, anemia and infertility.
“Having Phyllis Kessler from the Celiac Disease Foundation on ‘The Balancing Act’ has brought yet another great solution to women, one that will have a real impact, and help them balance their lives. This is the essence of solutions-based programming, and we are proud that we could bring this information to our viewers” says Doug Campbell, Founder and Executive VP of Programming for The Balancing Act.
