Join AAAAI and INDANA for a new live course on effectively managing the dietary nutritional needs associated with food allergies. Participation in this course does not require registration for the AAAAI 2016 Annual Meeting.

This brand new, one-day course will be offered immediately following the AAAAI 2016 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA. The course is designed to provide food allergy educational opportunities to RDNs and others who manage the dietary needs of patients with food allergies. We look forward to connecting with dietitians, physicians, and nurses to engage in the latest nutrition-related research, share resources, and network.

Food Allergy: The Spectrum of Disease, its Diagnosis and Management will begin with lectures on the spectrum of food allergic disease, the principles of nutrition and dietary management, the role of the diet history, and early life nutrition and allergy prevention. In the afternoon, participants will engage in four different problem-based learning workshops to provide more in-depth exposure to common nutritional issues in food allergy management.  

This unique course offers up to 6.25 continuing education credits for dietitians, nurses, and physicians. Sign up now as space is limited!

Travel stipends of $245 are available to dietitian participants in order to overcome recognized cost barriers for RDNs to obtain food allergy education. Priority will be given to non-local applicants. If you are an RDN and would like to submit an application for a travel stipend please click here or download the attachment below. Applications may be submitted prior to registering. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until funds are no longer available.

Credit must be claimed by December 31, 2016. Credit requests on or after January 1, 2017 will be subject to an administrative fee.
