FITs Unite in Baltimore for Education and Networking
By Monica Bhagat, MD, Senior FIT Representative to the Board of Regents

A new College year is upon us as we look back at our ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting in Baltimore last November. Just as this city is home to the Ravens, it became home to over 1,800 allergists-immunologists and other attending physicians. Read more

Statistic for Clinicians

This publication, originally published as a supplement to Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, is a scholarly, easy-to-understand, and practical guide to statistics. It is of considerable use to practicing clinicians and fellows in training as they critically read the literature that will guide their future practice patterns. It is also valuable to investigators, both basic and clinical, as they generate new knowledge in a scientifically and statistically valid fashion that will move our subspecialty forward to better treatments for our patients.
