Looking for Information to Provide Patients?

The AAAAI patient website has everything you need to help your patients through a new diagnosis or provide them with additional resources. The website includes information on allergies, asthma and PIDD, as well as videos, interactive tools, library articles, games and puzzles, a drug guide, conditions dictionary, the Virtual AllergistTM and more.
