Newly diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance? No problem!

Our Mission:

To increase awareness of gluten intolerance diseases including celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis by providing:

  • support to individuals with gluten intolerance and their families;
  • accurate, up-to-date, information and resources;
  • educational programs that promote positive, non-threatening information; and
  • outreach to health care professionals, restaurants and the general public.

One of the first recommendation by most practitioners to the newly diagnosed is to attend a support group.  Individuals already on the diet can help with information and resources and share what they have already learned. 

Disclaimer: Information we share may be helpful, but should not be considered medical advice.  We recommend that a person’s health care provider be consulted regarding diagnosis, treatment or other concerns related to making dietary changes.


Although we meet as a group once a month, feel free to call to arrange an individual meeting. For more information: Group Brochure
