The purpose of "A Grain of Truth: The Gluten Summit" is to move the conversation about gluten-related disorders between healthcare professionals and patients forward by many years. It often takes up to 17 years for groundbreaking research to reach local practice, and it is imperative for health that we sooner ask, "Is gluten the cause?" The summit will serve as a resource and reference for professionals and patients alike, providing answers to questions that have not yet permeated standard healthcare. Total expected online attendance for this free, worldwide event is 250,000.
"A Grain of Truth: The Gluten Summit" will be held online over a 7-day period. Dr. O’Bryan will sit down with each of the 29 renowned speakers to ask them questions about their areas of expertise. Each day, 3-4 interviews will be available on demand for a 24-hour period.
"There were a couple of basic, fundamental health problems that I saw in the medical office everyday, so I knew I had to start researching whether gluten was the cause," said O’Bryan. "And, I learned that gluten sensitivity, with or without celiac disease, is extremely prevalent. Yet, many people don’t have a clear understanding of its frequency or how it can manifest. The Gluten Summit will help doctors and patients get up to date so more can ask, ‘Is gluten the cause?’"
