Bridge lighting event to “Shine a Light on Celiac Disease,” May 16

In honor of International Celiac Awareness Day, the VUMC Celiac Disease Clinic is partnering with other organizations in lighting up the Korean War Memorial Bridge as part of the “Shine a Light on Celiac Disease”, an international effort to raise awareness for those with the disease. To support  patients and the greater Celiac community, the VUMC clinic is organizing a community walk and viewing on the adjacent pedestrian bridge just after sundown. Glow sticks will be available to all who attend to further shine a light on the Celiac community.
