The College has many great resources to offer its members on the member website. From time to time, we will highlight a few to keep you updated on what’s currently available. Today we take a closer look at a few advocacy resources, board review questions and upcoming events.
Advocating for allergists/immunologists
The College’s advocacy efforts work to support allergists and immunologists on issues that affect their practices and patients.
Learn who is advocating for you! The Advocacy Council Board members monitor proposed legislation and lobby state and federal elected officials. They can assist in resolving complex payment disputes and carrier policy issues.
Keep up to date with the latest news on advocacy, billing and coding, policy reform and more with the latest Advocacy Insider columns. The Advocacy Council – ADVOCATING FOR ALLERGISTS AND THEIR PATIENTS.
House of Delegates
Read about the leadership, super-delegates and state delegates of the House of Delegates (HOD). The HOD collects and disseminates important local, state and regional intel. It serves as the eyes and ears of ACAAI’s Advocacy Council so that opportunities can be identified and issues can be addressed before they have an adverse effect on the specialty. A calendar of this year’s events lists the Regional Town Hall Meetings and the Annual Town Hall Meeting, which takes place at the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting in November.
Board Review Corner
The Board Review Corner in the College Learning Connection (CLC) features a set of monthly review questions to help prepare Fellows-in-Training for board certification. The ten-question, case-based quizzes are available each month online or by PDF, along with an archive of 350 questions from prior years. The materials are developed from selected allergy and immunology textbooks by members of the FIT committee.
View upcoming state and local events of interest to those in allergy and immunology. State association meetings and programs, ACAAI programs, and more can be found on this handy page – complete with dates, pertinent information about the meeting, and a link to the meeting’s site for more information.
