The Celiac Support Association (CSA Celiacs) is now the National Celiac Association

Welcome to the National Celiac Association (NCA). CSA members voted to dissolve the organization and transfer most of its assets to National Celiac Association (NCA), formerly known as New England Celiac Organization (or NECO). The National Celiac Association remains dedicated to the mission of supporting, educating and advocating for individuals with celiac disease, their families and communities across the nation. Our grass roots approach hasn’t changed in the 24 years we have been in business. Wherever you may reside, you matter to us and we are here to help you!

Yours in health,
Lee Graham, Executive Director

NECO Goes National and becomes the National Celiac Association!

With the recent dissolution of Celiac Support Association, NCA has acquired their membership and the Recognition Seal Program that has enlarged the scope of our Boston based group. NCA is dedicated to the mission of educating and advocating for individuals with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, their families and communities across the nation. NCA draws on the expertise of Harvard-affiliated teaching hospitals for its Medical Advisory Board and has a track record for evidenced-based support and professionalism. Our grassroots outreach hasn’t changed in the 24 years we have been serving the celiac community.

Note from Bruce Homstead

The National Celiac Association, formerly the New England Celiac Organization, has acquired the assets of CSA including its membership, chapters, resource units, and Recognition Seal Program. This new structure gives each of us many advantages and benefits that we did not have before. The transition has taken a year, much longer than I expected and planned. Hard work, courage, many people, many meetings, and more, brought us to this exciting new place.

NCA, with its main office located in Boston, MA, sits in the world mecca of celiac disease research and possibility, second only to Finland. NCA is already benefitting from these resources.

It has been a pleasure and an honor to have served as your CSA president. I will miss the day-to-day interactions with all of you, however I sincerely hope you will join NCA in and on this journey, and spread the word to others who don’t know about it. With your thoughts, needs, and participation, together we keep the larger celiac community healthy and vibrant.

Wishing you many years of health and well being,

Bruce Homstead, MS, RDN, LDN, AFMCP
(Past President of the Celiac Support Association)
