Board Review

Look over the horizon. Expand your expertise.

Join your colleagues at the 2012 ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting in sunny Anaheim, Calif., Nov. 8-13, titled Over the Horizon: Expanding Expertise.

“My concept of our theme is in the form of an image looking out toward the horizon,” said Richard Weber, MD, FACAAI, president-elect and program chair. “There has been encroachment of our allergy-immunology territory by other specialists, primary caregivers, and even non-medical entities, squeezing and shrinking it. Therefore, our practices are changing. Since our training extends over the horizon of what we have typically done and seen, we have expertise that allows us to expand into areas of medical management that are just over that horizon.

“Working with ACAAI Vice President Michael Foggs, MD, FACAAI, Symposium Committee chair, it is our Annual Program Committee’s goal for this meeting to present for discussion areas we have knowledge about and in which we can manage patients as effectively, or better, than other practitioners,” he said.

The XIV International Food Allergy Symposium on Thursday, Nov. 8, will expand your diagnosis and management armamentarium. The full day symposium co-chaired by Amal Assa’ad, MD, FACAAI, Sami Bahna, MD, DrPH, FACAAI, and Alessandro Fiocchi, MD, FACAAI (SC).

What to do about those medical journals you haven’t had time to read? Expert faculty will digest them for you at the Friday Annual Literature Review, Everything You Should Have Read Last Year, But Didn’t, organized by Mark O’Hollaren, MD, FACAAI, and his committee.

Throughout the meeting, top experts will discuss issues germane to your practice in a variety of formats including workshops, led by Todd Mahr, MD, FACAAI, and Meet the Professor Breakfasts, led by Bradley Chipps, MD, FACAAI. The Abstract Review Committee, chaired by Jay Portnoy, MD, FACAAI, will select preliminary research germane to the specialty for concurrent oral and poster presentations.

Plus, special courses are offered for your staff, including Advanced Practice Health Care Providers and Allied Health Professionals, under the direction of David Khan, MD, FACAAI, Mary Lou Hayden, MS, NP, AE-C, and Deidre Sanders, MSN.

Plan to bring your family to sunny Anaheim, and they will enjoy activities hosted by the Alliance. This world-class visitor destination offers terrific beaches, unparalleled shopping and entertainment, trendy restaurants, exciting nightlife, championship golf, lively art districts, beautiful historic landmarks and popular family attractions.
