Meet our Dietitians
A dietitian is a regulated health professional who is passionate about food and the science behind it.
When you are diagnosed with celiac disease, you will be referred to a dietitian for help removing gluten from your diet.
Our team of expert dietitians provide evidence-based advice through our support line and by keeping the charity up to date on the latest in dietetic information related to the gluten-free diet.
Currently, our dietitians are working hard on a program for newly diagnosed celiac disease patients, to help guide them through the wealth of information the CCA has to offer. Stay tuned for information on this program coming in 2022.
