Action for Celiac Disease

Action for the welfare of people suffering from celiac disease.

Mission and Purpose

The Action for Celiac Disease Association’s mission is to promote awareness and distribute news and information on celiac disease, achieve solidarity among members and support individuals who have been diagnosed with celiac disease.

General Information

Action for Celiac Disease is the outcome of the collaboration of people who live in Macedonia, Epirus, Thrace and Thessaly. Their passion for knowledge on celiac disease related issues was the actual reason that has united them.  Access to safe nutrition and certified gluten-free products were their main agonies. Since every diagnosed celiac disease individual shares the same agonies, Action for Celiac Disease aims to serve and facilitate their everyday lives through knowledge and communication.
