From the President
Robert A. Wood, MD, FAAAAI

Dear Colleagues,

My presidential duties include traveling to other allergy organizations’ meetings to represent the AAAAI. One such trip was at the end of May for the 2018 European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Congress in Munich, Germany.

Our work with the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology is often in the spotlight—especially considering our organizations send out relatively frequent joint messages—but it is important to know that we also collaborate with our European colleagues.

As part of the scientific program for the EAACI Congress, I was asked to plan the AAAAI’s Sister Society Symposium titled “Food Allergy: The Best Papers this Year in JACI, CEA, and Allergy.” I was responsible for moderating as well as presenting important food allergy papers published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI). I was joined by Cezmi A. Akdis, MD, FAAAAI, who highlighted the best food allergy papers from EAACI’s journal, Allergy, and Graham Roberts, DM, who highlighted the best food allergy papers from Clinical and Experimental Allergy (CEA).
