State of the Art Food Immunotherapy Webinar

June 7, 2022

Several new therapies including OIT, EPIT, SLIT, and biologics (monoclonal antibodies) are being evaluated in large scale trials. Allergists need to have the most up to date knowledge of these emerging therapies to be able to educate their patients with food allergies and choose an appropriate therapy for each individual patient.

Accreditation
The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation
The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) designates this live activity for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category I Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Acknowledgement
