The Gluten Intolerance Group of North America is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and support to individuals with gluten intolerance diseases, Celiac disease and/or dermatitis herpetiformis, as well as to the families of those affected, healthcare professionals, and the public. Celiac disease is a chronic, immune-mediated intestinal malabsorption disorder caused by intolerance to gluten. Small itchy blisters on the skin surface characterize dermatitis herpetiformis, most commonly on body pressure points, such as elbows, knees, and feet. GIG offers a variety of program services including annual education conferences for professionals and patients; a summer Kid's Camp; a quarterly newsletter and other activities to support the patient, health professionals. It also provides public education and advocates for health changes important to persons with gluten intolerance.
