Trusted Source of Information
Our website provides access to well-researched and thoughtful articles on the science of disease and daily management of health conditions, while also highlighting important discoveries in AD research. We strive to provide the most thorough, accurate information available about nutrition, therapies, the human microbiome, specific autoimmune disorders, and environmental health as it develops. We also host informative expert talks and “Autoimmune Chats” with medical professionals and specific disease organizations.
We are compiling ongoing lists of resources for individuals living with autoimmune disease and other chronic illnesses. Our Autoimmune Organizations page lists specific disease organizations as well as groups focused on holistic approaches to health. On our Medical Institutions page, we’ve gathered together a long list of hospitals, medical centers, and clinics across the U.S. that specialize in various ADs. Our resources also include lists of books, apps, podcasts, and other tools to help manage life with a chronic illness.
Focus on Celiac Disease
The Global Autoimmune Institute is continuing our work in partnership with the Celiac Program at Children’s National Hospital (CNH) in Washington, D.C., which began in 2015.
Our support includes making possible the establishment of a Multidisciplinary Celiac Disease Clinic for celiac disease patients, the most comprehensive approach ever developed before. This serves as a national standard of the highest care for celiac disease patients and is becoming a referral clinic.
We co-produce podcasts, cooking videos, expert talks on celiac disease, and programs in celiac disease and associated ADs and neurological disorders.
We partner to hold an annual Gluten Free Education Day and Expo in the D.C. Metropolitan area. This event has proved wildly popular, and is spearheaded by the very talented Executive Director of the Celiac Program at CNH, Vanessa Weisbrod.
In the near future, we plan to hold a symposium in Washington, D.C., bringing together expert physicians and scientists in autoimmune neurological disorders. Stay tuned for details!
