Our support group meets to discuss issues related to Celiac Disease (CD), also known as “Celiac Sprue”, Gluten Sensitivity, and Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH). We promote education, health, and wellness for the gluten-free (GF) lifestyle.

We offer regularly scheduled meetings and special meetings for those newly diagnosed requiring a strict gluten free diet. Check out the Events page for our meeting schedule. Each support group meeting features a variety of GF products to sample. Available at our support group meetings: cookbooks, product information, recipes, dining suggestions, and information for newly diagnosed celiacs.

We are a Local Partner of the National Celiac Association.
