Every Monday, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness staff gathers at a large roundtable for our weekly conference call. With a few telecommuters and plenty of travel engagements, there’s usually someone on the road, so a call-in works best.
We chat about accomplishments, what we’re working on and how we can help each other reach our goals. It’s where we take the pulse of the organization, and also where we get to know each other. There are moments to share – “I just got the best witch’s hat for Halloween!” and the inevitable mishaps – “Tripped over the cable wire, again!” – but it’s part of the fun of working with this group.
Now, we’re starting a roundtable with you. Celiac Central: Bits and Bites will serve up the latest experiences, encounters and everyday observations from NFCA staff. We pull long hours (and the occasional fistful of hair) to improve diagnosis of celiac disease and make the gluten-free lifestyle easy to maintain.
As you’ll quickly find, we share a lot of the same concerns as you. (Stomach trouble at a party, anyone?) That’s part of what makes us so passionate.
We hope you enjoy this look behind-the-scenes of NFCA, and we encourage you to add your thoughts!
