TAAIS Coding and Severe Asthma Workshop

Austin, TX US
June 20, 2015

Credit claiming is now closed for this meeting.

This is a live course on June 20, 2015 from 8:00am to 4:30pm in Austin, TX.

This free live course, provided by the AAAAI and the Texas Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Society (TAAIS), will cover two areas of high interest to practicing allergist/immunologists - the introduction of ICD-10 and the management of patients with severe asthma. The one-day event will include a combination of lecture, small and large group discussion, and case studies to provide the latest updates and evidence-based recommendations. The agenda can be downloaded below.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This activity is supported in part by an independent educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Attendees may also participate in a non-CME certified lunch symposium, "Treating Asthma: Optimizing Diagnosis and Management," sponsored by Meda Pharmaceuticals.
