Website Review - National Foundation for Celiac Awareness

There are quite a few GF websites out there. The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has a well-designed, colorful web presence.
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) was formed as a national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization to raise awareness of celiac disease among the general public and the healthcare community, and to facilitate research to better understand the causes, mechanisms, and treatment of celiac disease.
They also have links to other GF blogs, that offer different slices of GF life. My posts are going to have a bit of a West Coast leaning to them (along with a healthy dose of sarcasm, humor, and the occasional rant - though I think you may have figured that out already).

I share their goal of raising the awareness of celiac disease...but I cannot be as earnest as they are all the time (though I am glad they are)...celiac disease is a major pain to deal with, and I find that humor and sarcasm help keep me going.

As for the rest of my review of their site...
The layout and colors are nice. Buttons neatly arranged in a soothing green.
Resources section is pretty nice. I think the Blog links are well designed and informative. I was disappointed that most of their activity seems to be centered in the Philadelphia area..but I guess you need to start somewhere. I like the symptoms checklist (like a celiac webmd)...I also think the personal stories section is a good idea.

What do you think of the celiac central site? Any other sites you'd like me to review?
