AAAAI President, Robert A. Wood, MD, FAAAAI, wrote the foreword for a recent USA Today insert on food allergies.
What is Drug Rash with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS)?
Help your patients understand the diagnosis and treatment for drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) with a new article in the Conditions & Treatments Library. The article is available in English and Spanish.
New Patient Education Videos Available on the AAAAI Website
New patient videos have been added to the Conditions & Treatments section of the AAAAI website, including select videos in English and Spanish. Your patients can listen to experts present a variety of new topics, including indoor allergies, peanut allergy prevention, oral food challenges and more.
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).
