Santa Cruz Celiac Support Group Organization

This group has been meeting since 1996, first in Los Gatos, then in Santa Cruz. Group founder and coordinator Pam Newbury has a husband and two sons with celiac disease. While she doesn’t have celiac disease herself, Pam adheres to a gluten-free diet, feeling, as one doctor put it, that “no one with less than two stomachs should eat wheat.”

We also have a library of books and periodicals of interest to celiacs. The materials are available to check out at our meetings or by special arrangement.

We are always looking for meeting spots (preferably for no charge) and speakers. We welcome tips on gluten-friendly restaurants and other businesses of interest to celiacs.

To send in your suggestions and for more information, contact Pam Newbury: [email protected] or 831-423-6904.
