Description

Course Description

Our course is designed to provide the practicing clinician, both generalists and allergists, with updates on the diagnosis and management of food allergies. The didactic lecture component, geared for both generalists and allergists, will focus on the different types of food allergies, identification and treatment of anaphylaxis, and potential treatments currently under investigation for food allergy. In addition, we will have break-out interactive workshops, with separate tracks specific for generalists and allergists.

For the generalists, the workshop topic will address the role of food allergy in atopic dermatitis. For the allergists, the workshop will focus on oral food challenges in the office setting. Our goal is to provide a unique, interactive course that elucidates the scientific advances which support current clinical practice guidelines for food allergy.

  • Accurately diagnose food allergies so that proper diets are instituted
