Welcome to "Promoting Innovation and Diversity," ACAAI's 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting!

The past year and a half have brought unique challenges to many aspects of life as we know it. In addition, business and medicine are changing in ways we could not have foreseen even a few years ago. The practice and business of medicine are no exception as we keep an eye on the need to innovate, adapt and diversify.
The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology's Annual Scientific Meeting takes place in New Orleans, the "Big Easy," on Nov. 4-8, 2021, with the theme, "Promoting Innovation and Diversity." The goal is to bring you the best education and science as it applies to clinical areas of allergy and immunology care, as well as ideas for new, more diverse and customized approaches to practice.

The College is actively monitoring the health and safety situation in New Orleans and the surrounding area, as well as national, state and local advisories and requirements pertaining to COVID-19. At this time, both "in person" and Livestream options are planned. Attendees who register for the live meeting will be able to convert to the Livestream program if needed. All College members will be updated regularly as we move closer to the meeting date.
