Celiac Awareness Toolkit
Awareness opportunities have no boundaries and the CSA Governing Board encourages celebrating awareness activies each and every day of every month. Traditionally, since 1987, October has been celebrated as Celiac Disease Awareness Month in the US and Canada. In 2009 Canada began to provide special awareness activities in May. May is the contemporary celebration focus for Awareness Activities.
