GKCAS 2019 Annual Allergy & Asthma Symposium
There is a need for clinicians to stay advanced in their practice on diagnostic strategies and newer treatments of allergic disease. Lectures based on the latest clinical evidence as well as incorporating practice parameters will allow clinicians to avoid negative consequences as they pertain to patient care --- these include diagnosis and treatment of venom hypersensitivity, the latest research in early introduction of highly allergenic foods, oral desensitization, various protocols for oral desensitization, eosinophilic disorders and mechanism of treatments.
This activity is supported by independent educational grants from Astra Zeneca, Stallergenes Greer and Kaleo, Inc.
