The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is the first center of its kind in the nation, offering a comprehensive approach to the disease: including reliable and accurate patient and professional education, expert diagnosis and treatment for both children and adults, ground-breaking bench and clinical research and active leadership in advocacy efforts.

The Celiac Center is dedicated to raising awareness and diagnosis rates nationwide and meeting the critical needs of people affected by celiac disease through education, research and advocacy.

The Celiac Center is also well known for some of the best programs and services for celiac disease in the country including:

Gluten-Free Care Package Program delivers a gift basket of gluten-free foods, educational materials about the disease and the diet to newly diagnosed Celiacs across the nation.

Celiac Disease Preceptorship Program is the only intense hands-on medical professional celiac disease education in the US.

Annual Free Blood Screening is a program that screens more than 500 people each year who are at risk for celiac disease often because their doctors refuse to carry the tests, insurance does not cover the cost or they are uninsured.

Information Hotline is available five days a week to answer any questions related to the diet or disease.

Benefit and Events occur throughout the year to build awareness and raise funds for the Center. Signature events include the Spring Flours Benefit, which attracts attendees from across the country for an evening of gourmet gluten-free fare and entertainment.

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is led by the medical director and executive director and is supported by a talented advisory board consisting of doctors, dietitians, nurses, business and lay people, each of whom has a special interest in celiac disease and is dedicated to the mission of the organization.

The team is led by Dr. Bana Jabri who has contributed to groundbreaking celiac research and has also been awarded the coveted 2009 Wm. K.

I purchased this book but got nothing more than the 16 sample pages. So glad I didn't waste more of my money.
