EAACI: Conference Update


This weekend I will be traveling to Copenhagen to attend the 2014 annual meeting of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, which will last until June 11.  On Monday, I will be giving a talk entitled Cost-Effective Allergy Management: How to survive and thrive.  Here’s a short summary of my presentation:

Coping with food allergies is a major burden for allergic consumers, for their families, and for the economy as a whole.  Until recently the size of this burden was not known.  Dr. Gupta will present the latest information on research that measured the economic and quality of life burden of food allergy in the US.  In addition, Dr. Gupta will discuss cost-effective options for food allergy management.  This presentation will give the audience important information to help understand the costs associated with food allergy and provide economically prudent tips for the food allergic consumer. —
