The Celiac Disease Foundation drives diagnosis, treatment, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy to improve the lives of all people affected by gluten-related disorders.
From sponsoring the first serology workshop, which led to today’s celiac disease blood test, serving on the planning committee for the landmark 2004 NIH Consensus Development Conference on Celiac Disease, to supporting clinical research, advocating on Capitol Hill for gluten-free labeling laws, partnering with mainstream manufacturers in creating today’s gluten-free marketplace, and offering the number one rated website for celiac disease, CDF has played a critical role in improving the lives of those afflicted and their loved ones. CDF’s annual National Conference and Gluten-Free EXPO is the largest national patient conference for celiac disease, with presentations and panel discussions with the world’s foremost celiac experts. CDF has an active network of Chapters and Support Groups delivering programs and services to the diagnosed and yet to be diagnosed. Our community fundraising program, CDF Team Gluten-Free, provides a simple way for athletes and non-athletes alike to raise awareness and funds for our programs for advocacy, education, and advancing research. We publish INSIGHT, a quarterly newsmagazine, as well as INBRIEF, a monthly e-newsletter dedicated to providing the latest information regarding research, advocacy, education, and the gluten-free lifestyle.
