A recent study by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the parent organization of Kids with Food Allergies, highlighted some startling gaps in what doctors understand about anaphylaxis, or severe allergic reactions.
On April 21, 2015 at 8 PM Eastern, join us for a webinar with Dr. Philip Lieberman, one of authors of the study, Anaphylaxis in America. He will share the eye-opening findings regarding physicians’ perceptions of day-to-day issues for patients and families at risk for anaphylaxis.
Dr. Lieberman will answer questions about:
- What doctors do - and don't - know about anaphylaxis
- What they understand about the impact of severe allergies on family quality of life
- Give parents key takeaways regarding the study findings.
You may submit your questions in advance on the registration form.
This webinar will be recorded. If you cannot attend the live event, a link to the recording will be emailed to you a few days after the event. By registering, you are opting in to receive email communications from Kids With Food Allergies.
We thank Sanofi for providing an unrestricted sponsorship of this webinar.
