We would like to thank the generous donors from our chapter who made this site possible.
We hope this site provides useful information for our members as well as for visitors to our city. We would also like to express our appreciation to all the dedicated volunteers who work so hard to raise awareness of celiac disease and help others to overcome the initial obstacles after diagnosis and learn to thrive.
