Description

Allergies and asthma are on the rise. Primary care physicians and providers continue to see and treat increasing numbers of patients presenting with symptoms caused by an allergic and/or asthmatic condition. With accurate diagnosis and the development of an effective treatment plan, many of these patients can be effectively treated by their primary care provider.

This conference will address the challenges, as well as the practical issues of diagnosis, treatment, and appropriate referral of patients presenting with allergy and asthma conditions. Specific conditions will be examined and immunotherapy will be discussed; including how to identify those patients that will benefit from immunotherapy and its appropriate use.
