New Frontiers: Advocating for Patients, Practices and Research
The ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting brings together the top experts in allergy, asthma and immunology from around the globe. No matter where you are in your journey – in training, a veteran allergist, or anywhere in between – we invite you to join us Nov. 7 – 11 in Houston for a stellar meeting experience. Over the last few years, the Annual Meeting has been successfully refocused and reimagined. “Last year we created a new College meeting experience with expert roundtables, clinical conundrums, interdisciplinary panels and practice application seminars. These new session types were so well received that we will be offering them again this year,” said ACAAI President Todd A. Mahr, MD, FACAAI. You won’t want to miss out on any of it!
“New Frontiers” is a fitting theme for our wide range of sessions, including:
International Food Allergy Symposium
We’ve gathered an all-star lineup of thought leaders from across the world to take this symposium to the next level. The all-day immersive program on Thursday, Nov. 7 features six international and 12 national experts discussing cutting-edge aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research. The day will end with the Texas Pro/Con Thunderdome – three back-to-back debates where two allergists enter and one allergist leaves.
What can you learn in 11 minutes? During this session on Sunday, seven speakers will each have just 11 minutes to update you on a specific topic. Hot topics include pediatric allergy, asthma and immunology. This session will include speakers from the American Academy of Pediatrics – Section of Allergy & Immunology.
ACAAI Allergen Extract Mixer Training Program
An unprecedented session, beginning with didactic presentations detailing the expectations of the revised USP 797, followed by a hands-on workshop where attendees will be properly outfitted, participate in area sterilization techniques, perform individualized media fill and glove tip testing. The session will conclude with a brief exam, and certificates of completion will be awarded to those who successfully pass.
