This list represents my current knowledge of the celiac community. As much as I try to keep it up-to-date, things are changing so quickly this is becoming harder all the time. So, if you find something that is not current or a link that does not work, my apologies, and do let me know so I can update my file.

Celiac Sprue Association

CSA has the best newsletter in terms of general information and support. Subscription is included with membership ($33).

GGluten Intolerance Group

GIG is centered in the Pacific Northwest, although they have chapters nationwide. The newsletter offers medical papers, recipes, news about the group’s activities, and other news of interest to celiacs. The newsletter comes with the membership ($35}. GIG occasionally offers Gluten-Free cruises (a good way to go on vacation without worrying about your diet). Each year they sponsor a gluten-free Kid’s Camp on Vashon Island in Washington.

There are now more web sites, blogs, lists, and forums than I can list here. This list will get you started, but if you search around you will be sure to find celiac resources on the internet that suit your particular needs.
