The resident education program is full with great topics which will be presented by world class speakers. Below is the official email announcement from FAAIS:


Dear FAAIS Members:

The executive board of the FAAIS is pleased to announce the return of our forum for medical residents in training, which will be held this year in lieu of our allied health program. This one day conference coincides with our annual meeting and offers those attending an extensive review of relevant topics in allergy and clinical immunology. For many, this represents the only time in their training to attend a world class forum in their backyard.

Starting with a review of allergy and immunology the resident will be able to better comprehend the concepts presented throughout the conference. The forum will cover the evaluation and management of patients with IgE mediated disorders, anaphylaxis, urticaria, hereditary angioedema, asthma, advances in targeted therapy and much more.

An important part of this educational initiative is dedicated to creating awareness of the vital role allergists play as consultants. In this regard our hope is to elevate the visibility of our field while promoting the expertise of the Florida Allergy Asthma and Immunology Society.

This promises to be a memorable event!
