EAC 2020 Update in Allergy, Asthma and Immunology

August 16, 2020 to August 18, 2020

The EAC 2020 Update in Allergy, Asthma & Immunology meeting will provide learners with knowledge regarding novel disease state developments and the expanding therapeutic armamentarium in the field of allergy, asthma and immunology. Learners will not only gain insights with regard to selecting the best therapeutic alternative for each patient, but they will also have the opportunity to develop novel strategies designed to enhance therapeutic adherence through shared decision making. The format will incorporate problem based learning (PBL), uniquely designed to interface with lectures in context to the core issues relevant to the cases. By means of active discussion, learners will be challenged to formulate and justify medical decision making concerning advancements in the diagnosis and treatment strategies for patients. Topics of discussion will include updates in diagnosis and treatment of HAE, biologics for severe asthma, allergic skin diseases, advances in peanut allergy treatments and management of penicillin and other antibiotic allergies.
