Expand Your Diagnosis and Management Skills at Food Allergy Conference

Dr. Assa'ad
Dr. Bahna
Dr. Fiocchi


In keeping with the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting theme, Over the Horizon: Expanding Expertise, expert faculty will address clinically relevant, timely topics at the International Food Allergy Conference on Thursday, Nov. 8, that will enable you to:

  • Take the helm on eosinophilic esophagitis
  • Be skilled in “off-the-beaten-track” food allergies
  • Navigate your way in evaluating hidden spice allergies
  • Detect immunodeficiency disorders disguised as food allergy
  • Learn about exciting new developments in food immunotherapy

The conference co-chaired by Amal Assa’ad, MD, FACAAI, Sami Bahna, MD, DrPH, FACAAI, and Alessandro Fiocchi, MD, FACAAI (SC).

Dr. Assa’ad will present the Luisa Businco Memorial Lecture on “Predicting the National History of Food Allergy.” Her presentation will take you through the years of care for your patient with food allergy, a food allergen at a time, and through each food allergy syndrome, one by one.

Experts also will discuss the food-pollen syndrome, food protein induced enterocolitis, and the rising concern about tree nut allergy. Participants will gain insight on optimal collaboration with dermatologists, gastroenterologists and primary care physicians.

The conference has been a regular highlight event sponsored by ACAAI since 1972. “With the increasing prevalence and variety of manifestations of food allergy, the programs have kept us at the cutting edge of this important area of our specialty,” said Dr. Bahna, who has participated in the conference since 1978.

In addition to the main program, new information on research in food allergy will be unveiled in oral and poster abstract presentations throughout the day.

See the conference listing in the online preliminary program and register online. Seating is limited, so don’t delay. A separate registration fee is required.
