Celiac Support Groups in Finland

3 Dec 1997

Copyright by Michael Jones, Bill Elkus, Jim Lyles, and Lisa Lewis 1996-2012 - All rights reserved worldwide.

A celiac's lifestyle is considerably easier with the help of a local support group. To assist in the process of finding local support, we have provided a series of files listing all of the celiac support groups that we are aware of. For each group one or more addresses and/or phone numbers are listed. When possible, e-mail addresses are also listed.

A very lax definition of support groups is used in these listings; any group that meets regularly for mutual support in handling celiac disease and the gluten-free diet is included in these listings. When a formal group is not available but someone is willing to function as a focal point, he/she is included as a "Resource Unit".

This is one of the files containing support group listings. This file is GROUPSFI, and contains all of the support group listings for Finland. The other files are named as follows:
