Program Description:

Pediatric allergic diseases exert an enormous economic and emotional toll on pediatric patients and their families. The most common chronic skin condition of young children, atopic dermatitis is generally the first in the “atopic march” that progresses to food allergies, asthma, and allergic rhinitis. This pediatric allergy Roundtable will feature a lively discussion of allergy experts about new findings from the LEAP study and the economic advantages of early intervention and allergy prevention for parents. Practical guidance for clinicians seeing pediatric patients and current recommendations will also be highlighted. Experts will share their individual expertise and the latest data as they discuss issues and strategies involved in the prevention of pediatric allergic diseases

Program Objectives:

  • Explain the impact of the growing problem of pediatric allergic diseases, especially atopic dermatitis, on infant and family quality of life
  • Assess data about the health economics of preventing vs managing allergy symptoms in pediatric patients
  • Recommend or implement nutritional interventions, including prenatal counseling, to families in order to prevent infant allergy
