Where We're Headed


What's Next?

Celiac and gluten-free awareness has come a long way, but we’re not done yet!Celiac Child with Carrot

Now that gluten-free is on everyone’s lips, we want to make sure the medical needs associated with celiac disease and gluten intolerance stay part of the discussion.

That means working even more closely with healthcare and foodservice professionals to ensure they’re treating you right.


In 2012, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness will bring you:

GREATSafer food. Through our industry initiatives and Gluten-Free Resource Education and Awareness Training (GREAT), NFCA will keep educating food manufacturers and restaurants about the risks of cross-contamination and the need for transparency in gluten-free food prep. We’ll expand our GREAT Business Association and help manufacturers bring delicious and nutritious gluten-free options to your table. Through GREAT Kitchens, we’ll prepare restaurants so they can serve you a safe and stress-free meal.

Celiac CME CentralSmarter Docs. You’re sick of misdiagnoses. Of bad advice. Of having to explain to your doctor what he or she should be explaining to you. We know. That’s why we launched CeliacCMECentral.com to teach primary care providers the ins, outs and most up-to-date information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. Now, we’re telling them about it any way we can: industry articles, face-to-face chats, and even through community members like you.
