Webinar: Going nuts about tree nuts: Learn what’s changed in tree nut allergy
December 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
There is a greater understanding of tree nut allergy now than ever before, and this has implications for the way the allergy is managed. Learn from Canadian allergist Dr. Douglas Mack on how tree nut allergy management has changed and what it may mean for affected individuals, like the ability to eat certain tree nuts. This session is just in time for the holidays, when there may be many seasonal bowls of mixed nuts at parties and other gatherings.
What the webinar is about: Current thinking about tree nut allergy management, allergy to a particular nut(s) versus all nuts, and considerations when you have tree nut allergy or care for someone who does. Plus, find out how well you can identify one nut from another as part of a show and tell.
Who is speaking: Dr. Douglas Mack, a Pediatric Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Specialist. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at McMaster University, on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, and on the Executive for Allergy & Immunology for the Ontario Medical Association.
