As the end of the year draws near, Mike and Cam reflect on their biggest takeaways from 2023 from a celiac and gluten free perspective. They come away with a wide range of observations, some that affected them very personally, and others that they see as larger issues that impact all of us.
Mike and Cam are excited to welcome Jax, Jon, and Leslie Bari to the podcast. Jax is an impressive young celiac advocate who has been featured on "ABC World News Tonight with David Muir," and met with President Biden! Jax and his parents are on a mission to advocate for change, and Jax authored a citizen's petition in his efforts to require the labeling of GLUTEN as a major food allergen, making all gluten containing grains labeled in the future. You will be so inspired by the work that Jax, Jon, and Leslie have done to create positive change moving forward!
The guys wrap up Part 2 of Fall News and Notes with a fun story about a podcast fan and his near meet-up with Mike in Madison. They share their thoughts about a NY Times article about the rise of students who need gluten free and allergen free foods in college. Also, a new listener who is still coming to terms with her daughter's celiac diagnosis.
