SEAAIS 2023 78th Annual Meeting
SEAAIS' 78th Annual Meeting is focused on the field of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. It is directed to physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and administrators. The purpose is to engage the audience through oral didactic presentations followed by group discussions. Each presentation is reflective of a need or interest of in-depth conversation or study requested by the membership and/or board. Case presentations are often utilized to solidify the objectives covered in each presentation.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) and Southeastern Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Society (SEAAIS). The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) designates this live activity for a maximum of 12.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
