What We’ve Been Up To

A lot of NFCA’s work happens behind-the-scenes. We’re making connections, all with the aim of making celiac diagnosis and management less “hassle” and more “hopeful.”


2011 Highlights and Accomplishments:

  • Public Awareness
    NFCA has reached more than 115 million viewers, readers and subscribers with nationwide media attention in wellness supplements distributed through USA Today, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune, as well as over 200 radio and television appearances. NFCA’s website, CeliacCentral.org has been named one of “10 Great Websites with Accurate Information." In 2011, NFCA launched Kids Central (www.CeliacCentral.org/kids), an online hub for gluten-free kids and their parents.
  • Boy with gluten-free sandwichContinuing Medical Education
    CeliacCMECentral.com, NFCA’s free online course for primary care providers featuring expert faculty members from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Mayo Clinic and USC’s Keck School of Medicine, has trained more than 270 primary care providers. In 2010 and 2011, nearly 60 dietitians completed accredited online and in-person training programs. In 2011, NFCA launched GREAT Pharmacists to offer free online training for pharmacists (including those at Rite Aid and Walgreens), an often overlooked but important partner in the diagnosis and management of celiac disease.
  • Foodservice
    In collaboration with manufacturing and food industry partners, NFCA is training K-12 schools as well as colleges and universities across the U.S. in safe gluten-free protocols. To date, more than 350 restaurants, chefs and corporate dietitians have been trained through GREAT Kitchens, and several colleges and universities have trained their dining halls through its sister program, GREAT Schools.
