The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is proud to announce Healthcare Relations Manager Kristin Voorhees, MA has been selected to serve as a Patient Advocate Fellow for the Drug Information Association (DIA), a  neutral, global, nonprofit association that provides knowledge resources across the full spectrum of medical product development. DIA provides professionals at all levels and across all disciplines access to timely and authoritative information to advance careers, skills, and innovation in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and related fields.
