Yahoo Groups allow people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity to connect with each other directly online, ask each other questions, find resources, research topics previously discussed and network. Yahoo Groups arose before there were many other options for online connections and some of them are still going strong. There are many related to celiac disease and the gluten-free diet, local, national or international. To join a Yahoo Group, go to http://groups.yahoo.com/ and become a Yahoo member by creating a username and password. It’s free, and your public profile can be anonymous. After you join Yahoo you can search for groups related to your geographic area and interests, such as the examples below, and join them individually.
