We're thrilled that FPIES is featured on the agenda of the upcoming 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology! Held in Los Angeles from March 4-7, this is the premier event in allergy/immunology with thousands of allergists, immunologists, allied health and related health care professionals attending.
This conference is an important opportunity for International FPIES Association (I-FPIES) to educate and advocate for FPIES patients to allergy experts from around the world. I-FPIES will be raising FPIES awareness throughout the event at our booth, as well as attending sessions and connecting with our partner organizations. We look forward to sharing as many developments and insights as we can with you on our social media channels!
Today we're highlighting a session devoted to the current understanding of FPIES and identifying where the gaps in knowledge still exist:
