Film review by The Lancet of The Celiac Project film April 2019. The Lancet Celiac Project Film Review April 2019

I love this podcast. It is such an honest, open dialogue about what it means to have Celiac disease from two guys who live it firsthand. It isn't stuffy or impersonal like a lot of stuff out there. As a newly diagnosed Celiac myself, this has been such an invaluable resource. I hope they keep many more episodes coming!

This podcast is amazing! Having a friend with Celiac made me inspired to learn more about the disease. This podcast adds such a humanistic touch to learning more about what my friend is going through. This podcast is also great because I see the community it is already forming to raise awareness and support for people with Celiac.

The Celiac Project is a refreshing combination of the experience of patients and families living with celiac disease and commentary by notable clinical and research experts in the field. This entertaining and educational documentary will go a long way to help inform the public and medical professionals about celiac disease.

Michael Frolichstein's documentary does a great job illuminating the facts, myths, and misconceptions about celiac disease and the challenges of managing the gluten-free diet. Frolichstein uses his story and that of his family for an engaging backdrop to a film that includes interviews with some of the top professionals in the field. This dynamic and heartwarming film is a must watch for healthcare professionals, caregivers, family members of people who are already diagnosed, and anyone who wants to be an advocate for their own health and the health of their loved ones.
