Alice Bast is the Founder and President of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing diagnoses of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders and improving quality of life for those on a lifelong gluten-free diet. Alice founded NFCA in 2003 after her personal experience with celiac disease ignited a passion to help others avoid the suffering that she endured for years. Since then, Alice has become a leader and recognized expert in the gluten-free community. NFCA offers free patient resources at www.CeliacCentral.org; physician education at www.CeliacCMECentral.com; and gluten-free foodservice training at www.CeliacCentral.org/GREAT.
