It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of one of our most beloved members. Lauren has been an integral part of our group since 1995 and touched the lives of our members in so many ways. A clinical social worker with a private psychotherapy practice, she spoke at our meetings about coping with the psychological issues of living with a chronic disease.
She wrote “The Gluten-Free Way” in our magazine touching on the emotional aspects of celiac disease with such great insight. A long-time member of our executive board, Lauren brought a balanced view to discussions and confronted issues with endless curiosity and caring. As an editor, educator, and executive board member, this amazingly talented and accomplished woman will be sorely missed. We send our deepest and heartfelt sympathies to her beautiful family.
With loving memories,
National Celiac Association
