I do not have celiac disease, but my friends do and I have seen, first hand the impact of this volunteer based organization. I have been in the CSA office when the toll free phone has been ringing off the wall with people needing help, asking questions about their disease. The wonderful, caring staff work very hard to make everyone that contacts them feel important. I have also worked to help with the educational offerings that CSA distributes. They have a great collection of printed material and an extremly popular website. I know many use and trust the CSA Product Listing. Truly, CSA members live the CSA motto-"Celiacs Helping Celiacs!"

This organization for individuals with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis is really a dedicated and caring group to work with and at a very professional level. They have a motto of "Celiacs Helping Celiacs" and they really do just that. I have learned much from their website and the many free materials they distribute. They have a wonderful newsletter and I would reccomend buying their CSA Product Listing. It is the bible for people with celiac disease. Thank you, thank you, thank you CSA.

I found out about this organization in the 1980s. Having been originally diagnosed in the 1940s and again in the 1960s, I was looking for help. CSA was able to help me with my diet and by my attending their national conferences and local support groups, I learned even more about my disease. This experience enabled me to better communicate with my physician and take control of my illness.
