The Asthma and Allergy Network’s fourth annual USAnaphylaxis Summit is coming up. This program, designed to "share resources, strategies, and experiences... to build a strong, community-based anaphylaxis network,” is comprised of physicians, nurses, school administrators, social workers, first responders, parents, caregivers, community members, and so many more.
All of those in attendance have the same goal: to learn more about—and improve the lives of those who suffer from—allergies and anaphylaxis. Distinguished speakers from across the country present their research, give advice backed by the latest science, and facilitate discussions about the many aspects of allergies and anaphylaxis.
This year, three conferences are being held across the country: September 23rd in St. Louis,September 30th in Orlando, and October 7th in Las Vegas. The topics being covered this year include risk-taking behavior in young adults with life-threatening allergies, allergy management in schools, food and latex allergies, legislation, health insurance, and so many more. As an Anaphylaxis Community Expert (ACE) volunteer, I will be speaking this year as I have in years past. This summit is a great source of important information around anaphylaxis, and that I would highly recommend attending, since it is a fabulous event. Allen Lieberman, MD, a board-certified allergist at Austin Family Allergy and Asthma (TX) and ACE volunteer, says that “it was the best session on the topic of food allergies that [he has] attended in years.”
