Medical Advisory Board
A Medical Advisory Board increases the credibility of any local support group, both in the eyes of national organizations and in those looking for a support group. Naturally, MABs also provide "in-house" experts, or resources, for our membership. We have been so fortunate in SACS to have found some of our own support group members, who are also celiacs/gluten intolerant, to serve on our MAB.
This impressive list of professionals makes SACS one of the few CSA Chapters that have a Medical Advisory Board. We believe this will not only help draw more people to our chapter, but will help us increase awareness of celiac disease throughout southern Arizona, or perhaps even beyond that.
