Behind the Scenes

A person with celiac goes, on average, between 6 and 10 years to be correctly diagnosed. For people like Jordan, it’s easier because he comes from a family with a history of the disease, but the effects of the disease still persists. I interviewed Jordan because I have known him for quite some time and he has always been a cheerful person despite the challenges he faces. Getting to interview him and hear why he remains so positive was a great experience.
