Celiac Disease Resources
Here are a few of our favorite resources for living and eating gluten free.
Celiac Disease Foundation
The Celiac Disease Foundation is a non-profit, public benefit corporation that is dedicated to providing services and support regarding celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis.
Regional Celiac Centers
A Specialized Center for Celiac Disease at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA is our region's top celiac specialty center for adults. For children, visit the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children's Hospital.
Having the support of other adults and parents living in the world of celiac disease is a key ingredient when managing a gluten-free lifestyle. Come join our monthly "Living Gluten Free" Support Groups-- available in our West Springfield, Norwell and Rocky Hill Big Y locations. These support groups are led by a registered dietitian and are in collaboration with the National Celiac Association.
The goal of these meetings is to foster open conversation and sharing in an intimate surrounding. There are no set agendas. Attendees are there to share concerns and answer questions. Open to members and non-members. Note: Attendees will be offered samples of gluten-free snacks.
