Food-Dependent Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis

This is an interactive course that aims to educate physicians and allied health providers about the diagnosis and management of food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA). This course discusses symptoms, triggers, and diagnostic tools to help with the identification of FDEIA in patients, as well as pathophysiologic theories about its precipitation. We'll also cover management strategies that should be recommended to patients.
