We work to "get the word out" about celiac disease through local chapters and resource units, as well as personal telephone and on-line support given by our national office. (see contact information at the bottom of this page). We produce and disseminate many helpful resources such as our quarterly newsletter, Lifeline and The CSA Gluten-Free Product Listing.
Offer Educational Opportunities
- Educational Conferences - State and regional are typically held each fall. October is traditional Celiac Awareness Month. States often hold an annual national membership meeting as well.
- Cel-Kids Network - A network of information and education has been set up especially for children. It includes Camp Celiac, a week long gluten-free camp experience exclusively for kids with celiac disease/dermatitis herpetiformis.
- Speakers Bureau - Topical presenters are available upon request for group, club or conference gatherings. Contact the national office for information. (See below.)
Participate in and Support Research
CSA is actively involved in the on-going work of the scientific community to discover how CD is related to other health situations. Through our Peer Review Research Grant Program, we provide for product testing and a variety of celiac-related research activities.
