In collaboration with the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, NFCA developed a written protocol for the diagnosis of celiac disease intended for standard use by healthcare professionals treating women during preconception, early pregnancy and in infertility programs. The protocol has been reviewed by nurse practitioners and physicians practicing in obstetrics and gynecology.
