July 23, 2018

Some of you may be going on vacation this month. That is a great time to sit down and spend some time reading articles and features in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology that you may not have had time to read yet. In keeping with our “something for everyone in every issue” promise, I want to call a couple of articles to your attention.

July 9, 2018

July has arrived and the weather is hot just about any place in the Northern hemisphere that you choose to visit. That may mean you spend a bit more time indoors which could give you more time to peruse the pages of our July 2018 issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

There are multiple articles that will have impact on your practice, and I would like to call your attention to two in particular.

We are excited about the contents of our April issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Common food allergy questions answered and childhood asthma risk


March 26, 2018

I hope you have had a productive March and that Annals has in some way contributed to your productivity. I want to be certain that you are aware of two of the useful articles in this month’s issue.
