We already know that 83 percent of the people with celiac disease in this country are undiagnosed. The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) announced in December 2015, that they changed their name to Beyond Celiac.

The new name unveiled through their updated website the evolution of the organization from their early focus on awareness to the expanded role today of helping to increase the rate of celiac diagnosis, improve care, and expand research on new treatments, with the ultimate goal to find a cure for celiac disease by 2025.  Learn more about the organization’s community resources, advocacy work and research efforts by visiting  Like us on Facebook.
