June 14, 2011
As one of NFCA's Athletes for Awareness since early 2009, I put my support strongly behind their excellent work in the realms of education and awareness related to celiac disease and the broader gluten-free community. NFCA's efforts to increase rates of successful diagnosis, to educate and train restaurants and medical professionals, to reach out the gluten-free community via educational webinars and other events, and to share the latest results of cutting edge research make them a major player in the celiac and gluten-free community.

As someone with celiac, as a GF blogger, as a cookbook author, and as an athlete, the NFCA is never far from the work I do.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
