Support groups are a valuable resource for the newly diagnosed as well as the seasoned Celiac & non-celiac gluten-sensitive community. By attending local support group meetings and seminars you will gain important information on the latest in medical research, dietitian recommendations, useful tips for living a healthy gluten-free lifestyle, and so much more. Sign up for a workshop on the 1, 2, 3’s of living gluten-free or a demonstration on how to prepare delicious gluten-free breads & desserts! Support Group meetings are a wonderful venue where you can chat with others on a similar Celiac journey. Take your spouse, a friend, or go solo. Consider volunteering! Our list below ranges from larger, organized groups to smaller, intimate settings.
Note to Local Support Group leaders: If you have updated contact information, please let us know so we will have the most up-to-date info available for our website visitors.
