Collaborate with Asthma Professionals 

Interested in collaborating with fellow AAAAI members who share a particular interest in Asthma Education? The Asthma Diagnosis and Treatment (ADT) Interest Section is the community for AAAAI members interested in advancing the knowledge and understanding of asthma diagnosis and treatment. Topics covered include: allergen specific and non-specific bronchoprovocation, allergic and immunologic assessment and imaging studies, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction and exercise testing, inhalation delivery devices, pharmacologic and immunologic therapy.

To learn more about the work of this interest section, contact one of the leaders below:

Chair: Sharmilee M. Nyenhuis, MD FAAAAI                     

Vice Chair: Thanai Pongdee, MD FAAAAI              

Secretary: Alan P. Baptist, MD MPH FAAAAI                 

Staff Liaison: Renee Vandlik

Interested in aligning with ADT?

Becoming part of the ADT community network is as simple as linking to your AAAAI personal member profiles and updating your profile to reflect your primary membership as ADT under the tab labeled Involvement.

Or, consider the work of the Asthma, Cough, Diagnosis and Treatment Committee. Its purpose is to promote education concerning the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of asthma and cough. NOTE: Interest Section Committees are open to all members of the AAAAI.
