Online registration has now closed. You may register on-site at the Hilton Garden Inn - Lexington Room beginning at 7:30 am on Saturday, November 14.
This live course will take place on November 14, 2015 in Corpus Christi, TX.
This half-day CME course on allergies and asthma is geared towards family physicians, internists, pediatricians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses. The purpose of the program is to upgrade the knowledge base of primary care healthcare professionals with regard to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic, asthmatic and immunologic diseases and to understand when a case should be referred to an allergist/immunologist for further treatment. The format will be didactic lectures and case discussions with question & answer sessions to provide for audience interaction and feedback.
The mission of the 270-member Texas Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Society (TAAIS) is to improve the quality of life of Texans who suffer from allergies, asthma and immunodeficiences. We reach this goal by providing continuing education each year to our member allergists/immunologists and also to primary care physicians and nurses.
