Spotlight on the Annual Meeting
At the College’s Annual Scientific Meeting, new research presented showed promise for a treatment to help people with severe peanut allergy tolerate accidental peanut exposure. The abstract titled Age-Related Findings from the Peanut Allergy Oral Immunotherapy Study of AR101 for Desensitization (PALISADE) Study, was presented by Stephen Tilles, MD, FACAAI, College past president. The results of the study were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study shows it is possible for some people with peanut allergy to protect themselves from accidental ingestion by building up their tolerance to peanut over time.
During the College's Annual Scientific Meeting, Twitter was flooded with the latest allergy info from our sessions. Allergists who were not able to make it to Seattle could follow along from home, and attendees were able to help spread the latest and greatest evidence-based science around the world. Here at the College, we deeply appreciate our College members and meeting attendees who like and retweet our posts and contribute their own, so we've rounded up some of the best pearls tweeted during the meeting for you to enjoy.
The College is proud to honor the following individuals for their contributions to the College and the specialty of allergy/immunology. These awards will be presented at the Annual Scientific Meeting, Nov. 15-19 in Seattle, during the College’s Annual Business Meeting at 5:15 pm on Sunday.
Distinguished Fellow Awards will be presented to Mark Corbett, MD, FACAAI and Dana Wallace, MD, FACAAI. The award is given in recognition of outstanding contributions and commitment in the United States or Canada on behalf of the specialty.

We know College members are extremely busy people – from working in your practice all day to catching up with your EHR at night. Who has time to read every piece of scientific literature that comes out about allergy and asthma? That’s why at the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting, Nov. 15-19 in Seattle, we’re continuing our popular Annual Literature Review that brings you everything you should have read but didn’t.
We have fantastic speakers and thought leaders lined up for this year’s meeting. And just like past Annual Meetings, we will have several named lectures – given by speakers who embody the high standards and achievements of the physicians for whom the lectures are named.

There’s nothing like hands-on experience to help you learn a new concept or diagnostic test. Being able to observe as well as perform has benefits ranging from increased retention to risk mitigation. That’s why, at this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting, Nov. 15-19, we’re offering a selection of hands-on workshops that you can add on to your registration.
Hands-on workshops include:
