Mike and Cam reach into their mailbag and share some current events for Part 1 of late summer News and Notes. They share a listener's unbelievable tale of restaurant misconduct that reminds the guys of the JD's challenges at Colonial Williamsburg. Even worse is a story from Newsweek about a man whose sister crosses the line in his gluten free kitchen. Also a couple from Colorado known for pizza and so much more!
September 13th was National Celiac Awareness Day, which got us thinking things like "why is there both a day and a month devoted to celiac disease awareness?" So we decided it was a perfect time for another edition of "Stump Mike and Cam." In this episode, the guys test their knowledge on celiac awareness topics. Play along with us at home and hope you learn something along the way. I know that we did!
Mike and Cam are excited to welcome Kendra Williams to the podcast. Kendra and her dog, Suki, have become fixtures on social media, sharing their adventures in gluten detection far and wide. Kendra explains how having Suki has changed her life, and illuminates the guys on both the positives and the challenges of having a gluten detection dog-a truly illuminating conversation.
You can also learn more about Kendra and Suki on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok @sukipwd and their website https://www.sukipwd.com/ and also on YouTube https://youtube.com/channel/
Marilyn Geller, CEO of the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) is back to join Mike and Cam to talk about some of the exciting work that they are doing. Learn more about CDF's recent campaign for their ICureCeliac registry, how you can get involved to help find treatments, and hopefully an eventual cure for celiac disease. As Cam says, become a "Pioneering Patient!" In addition, Marilyn talks about the CDF's efforts to communicate with the FDA to improve their gluten free labeling of products.
