As New Orleans and other regions recover from Hurricane Ida, our thoughts and concern are with the people who have been affected. The College has been in communication with our contacts in New Orleans. Reports as of today indicate that power has been restored to most of the New Orleans area, and the convention center repairs are underway and expected to be complete within a matter of days.
The Patch-testing Spectrum
Saturday, Nov. 6, 1:00 – 2:30 pm CT
Increase your level of patch testing knowledge through hands-on training. Physicians at the forefront of the latest techniques will guide attendees through testing for general allergens to enhanced testing for occupational allergens and implanted metal and bone cements.
The Use of Case Simulation for the Education of Allergy Emergencies – Spotlight on Anaphylaxis
Saturday, Nov. 6, 1:00 – 2:30 pm CT and Saturday, Nov. 6, 3:00 – 4:30 pm CT
Learn to identify and treat infantile and adult anaphylaxis. You’ll gain first-hand knowledge of the use of simulation for office drills/preparedness of systemic reactions/anaphylaxis in allergy practices. Each attendee will utilize simulators for both an adult and pediatric encounter.
Punching Through Dermatitis Dilemmas
Saturday, Nov. 6, 3:00 – 4:30 pm CT
Through case studies and hands-on training, attendees will learn when a punch biopsy is warranted and techniques for a precise and patient-friendly procedure in addition to being updated on the most effective uses of wet wraps and creams.
When you register for the Annual Meeting, add these workshops to your schedule! You’ll get to practice techniques and leave ready to implement them perfectly in your own practice. Seating is limited.
Health and safety notes: In the New Orleans area, COVID-19 cases are continuing to trend downward, and 70.6% of adults are fully vaccinated in Orleans parish (80% have had at least one dose.)
The College is closely monitoring all public health recommendations for the New Orleans area and will continue to prioritize the health and safety of faculty and attendees. As we move closer to the time of the meeting, we’ll have all the information attendees need regarding any health and safety requirements that will be in place at the convention center and the city of New Orleans in November.
