Get Excited About the 2021 Annual Meeting

We’re planning outstanding education, networking and fun for New Orleans this fall.

We’re gearing up for an exciting 2021 ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting, Nov. 4 – 8! There is so much planned for an educational, collaborative and fun program in New Orleans. We value our attendees and we’re programming the Annual Meeting to meet your needs.

From the Thursday Program throughout Monday’s expanded and compelling sessions, our expert presenters will deliver dynamic and practical tips to assist you with your patients and your practice . You can also look forward to networking and reconnecting in person through our exhibits, ePosters and our popular social events.

Attend the Thursday symposium and get the latest information on dermatologic allergy and current and coming treatments for moderate to severe atopic dermatitis. The Thursday Program will end with the Battle by the Bayou: Three allergists enter, one allergist leaves.

We have some amazing plenary sessions planned:

  • Saturday’s Presidential plenary will discuss how allergists have innovated to face medicine’s most daunting challenges; how we diversify and expand our practice and how we reach across the globe to learn allergy prevention from each other. This insightful session will discuss important factors that impact our ability to care for the patients we see every day. The COVID-19 pandemic has been an extraordinary challenge for our world. That challenge was met with incredible innovation that has created new vaccines and therapeutics for a disease in record time. Allergists/Immunologists are at the forefront of this innovation. This session will review the COVID-19 pandemic and how to prevent another one, along with describing the incredible advancements in vaccine and therapeutic development.

  • The Sunday plenary will be led by Keynote Speaker, Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and professor of pediatrics and molecular virology & microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Hotez has been instrumental in sharing accurate and important pandemic messaging through many national and international news outlets throughout the 2021 crisis.

  • Monday’s plenary will offer high yield updates from recently published guidelines including the NHLBI asthma guidelines, EoE guidelines and practice parameters on drug allergy.

Perennial favorites such as the Friday Literature Review Session, Allied Health and Practice Management programming, and the Pediatric 7 for 11 rapid-fire update will return. The interactive JEOPARDY session will return to test attendees' ability to identify dermatologic conditions.

An exciting Monday Program includes a second 7 for 11 session (seven experts have just 11 minutes to deliver impactful reporting), this time offering the latest science on dermatology.

We’ll also be addressing the growing epidemic of secondary immunodeficiency and have constructed a full session on how to start an OIT Program from the ground up within your Practice.

Enjoy the warmth and fun of New Orleans and get the education, research, and Podium to PracticeTM takeaways you’ve come to expect from the ACAAI Annual Meeting. Registration opens this summer.
