De-mystifying anaphylaxis: uncovering what’s known and what’s not known

May 25, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Update: Watch the webinar recording here.

What the webinar is about: Join our discussion to learn fact from fiction around anaphylaxis and what can be done to address the unknowns. Canadian allergists Dr. Philippe Bégin and Dr. Julia Upton will answer your top questions on anaphylaxis, a serious allergic reaction that can be life-threatening. The discussion will include topics like does each allergic reaction become increasingly worse or more severe, does a trace amount of an allergen trigger anaphylaxis, does anaphylaxis mean fatality, how to manage the unpredictability around the severity of reactions, and more! Submit your questions in advance upon registration.

This session is a part of our Know it. Treat it. initiative to empower Canadians and take the fear out of anaphylaxis.
