March 2024 NCA News

Hi everyone!

For the past decade, I have been lucky enough to have been a part of some great organizations and my journey has allowed me to witness firsthand the unmatched support that exists on multiple levels within our celiac and gluten-free community.

I get to work with the most amazing people on a daily basis. The staff at NCA all have a passion for helping others and they go above and beyond to make sure that there are programs, services, and resources to support people from all walks of life.

I have opportunities to meet and develop relationships with a wide range of professionals; from medical experts to food manufacturers. Their support ranges from research and treatment developments to providing safe & nourishing products for our consumption. 

And most importantly, I am able to connect and speak with you, the people who make up our generous and caring community. I love to hear your individual stories about your resiliency in your personal journey. I am also in awe of the support that you give to each other, be it through community activities or by just lending an ear and listening to others. 

This edition of NCA News features even more ways that we can support one another. There are multiple opportunities to join advocacy efforts and how to participate in webinars that provide support to those in often overlooked demographic groups. I know that this amazing community will embrace these opportunities and continue to humble and amaze me. 

My sincere thanks for your past, present, and future support. 

Stronger together,

Chris Rich, Executive Director and CEO
