Let’s talk allergy! This is the theme of our #bridging the gap seminar which will be held in Port Elizabeth in September 2017.
Allergies occur in about 30% of all South Africans, and are the commonest chronic diseases in childhood. Yet these conditions are poorly managed at all levels of the health service, and many myths and inaccuracies about allergies persist. That’s why the Allergy Foundation of South Africa is bringing together top allergy experts, nurses, pharmacists, general practitioners, patient advocates and patients in a unique session to #bridge the gap. Our allergy experts will discuss all aspects of allergies and also cover the basics of primary immune deficiency.
Join us to learn about what allergy actually is, about how to recognise, manage and control the common diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, eczema and urticaria and to delve deeper into food allergy … learn about how to recognise and manage food allergy, to reduce the risk of severe reactions, to cope with allergies in schools, and how to manage the most dangerous of allergic reactions … anaphylaxis.
With sessions on the prevention of allergy and the cure of allergy, we have something for everyone. Our interactive presentations with plenty of discussion time, as well as sessions where you can browse the posters in our “allergy village” will guarantee that you enjoy yourself and turn you into an allergy expert. We look forward to welcoming you, sharing experiences and learning from each other on 16th and 17th September at the “let’s talk allergy conference” from 8 am to 1:30 pm.
