About Us

The Healthy Villi is a membership-based, non-profit, all-volunteer organization whose mission is to provide support and education to people with celiac disease and their families. 


Based in Boston, we are most active in Eastern Massachusetts, but are happy to assist other celiac support groups elsewhere in New England.


We deliver our support and education primarily via:

  • The Healthy Villi Newsletter, which is published for members four times a year;
  • Three day-long membership meetings per year, featuring a keynote speaker, a medical advisory panel, a delicious gluten-free buffet, and a GF emporium packed with vendors;
  • Monthly small-group support meetings at various locations in Greater Boston;
  • A celiac telephone hotline (Boston Area: 617-262-5422; Toll Free: 1-888-4-CELIAC);
  • The Healthy Villi web site.

We rely on membership dues and donations to conduct our activities. 


The Healthy Villi is unaffiliated with any hospital or similar organization. However, we are a member of the American Celiac Disease Alliance, a national non-profit organization that represents and advocates on behalf of the entire celiac community: patients, physicians, researchers, food manufacturers and other service providers.
