The new, completely redesigned website offers visitors useful interactive features and easy access to essential information.
Nov. 8, 2018 /Celiac.org/ — The Celiac Disease Foundation announced today the launch of its newly redesigned website located at the same address: Celiac.org. With more than 6.5 million unique visitors annually, Celiac.org is, by far, the most visited celiac disease site in the world. This new design was created specifically for our online community of celiac disease patients and caregivers, healthcare professionals and researchers, as well as general visitors. The new site offers a streamlined design, improved functionality and navigation, and enriched content, all designed to advance the Foundation’s mission to accelerate diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease.
The new Celiac.org features an expanded lineup of educational resources and research-driven tools. For example, showcased are improvements to the Foundation’s widely used Symptoms Assessment Tool, an interactive questionnaire that now reports if you or your loved one are at an increased risk for celiac disease. If you are at risk, you may receive a copy of the results to take to your physician to discuss testing for celiac disease. The Tool is linked to the Foundation’s online Healthcare Practitioner Directory, helping you find physicians and dietitians familiar with treating celiac disease in your local area. The website also links to iCureCeliac®, the nation’s largest public celiac disease patient registry, and a newly developed clinical-trial screening tool, iQualifyCeliac. We are especially excited about iQualifyCeliac because it facilitates patient participation in all-important, FDA-approved clinical trials to advance the development of treatments and a cure for celiac disease by matching qualified patients to current clinical trials. New offerings also include an updated Eat! Gluten-Free, displaying gluten-free products, services, meal plans and recipes. As always, celiac.org continues to provide the latest in biomedical and epidemiology research, patient and provider education, important patient advocacy, and ways individuals can support the Foundation.
“We are committed to improving the lives of celiac disease patients and their caregivers. We see the new Celiac.org as a central element in that mission, especially in providing critically needed information to patients, professionals, and others about improving disease diagnosis, advancing biomedical research for treatments and a cure, and supporting a gluten-free lifestyle,” said Marilyn G. Geller, Celiac Disease Foundation Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to develop and share via Celiac.org timely information about celiac disease, and a wide range of user-friendly tools and apps to advance the well-being of our community.”
“This website redesign is truly another example of the Celiac Disease Foundation’s commitment to creating the most informative experience for our community,” said Chairman of the Board Jim Watson. “I encourage everyone to explore the new website, sign up for the Foundation’s email updates, and join us in the fight to increase the rate of diagnosis, to improve treatments, and to find a cure for celiac disease.”
