The Allergy & Asthma Network has entered into a partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics to provide training and resources for pediatric healthcare providers.
The Allergy & Asthma Network has entered a partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to provide training and resources to hundreds of pediatricians and pediatric specialists, and in support of the AAP’s Medical Home Chapter Champions on Asthma, Allergy, and Anaphylaxis.
Allergy & Asthma recognizes that pediatricians are often the first to diagnose and treat childhood asthma and allergies and, as a result, would most benefit from continuing education programs designed to keep them up-to-date on the latest and best clinical practices.
“The Chapter Champions program has helped the Network engage with pediatricians and pediatric specialists to provide support for patients, raise awareness of asthma and allergies, and make an impact in their communities,” said Tonya Winders, president and chief executive officer of the Allergy & Asthma Network. “By encouraging appropriate referrals to specialists and sharing educational resources, including webinars and the monthly Champions E-Correspondence newsletter, we expand our network of healthcare professionals and promote patient-centered, team-based care.”
Chapter Champions are a group of over 50 volunteer healthcare professionals across the US working to promote expert asthma and allergy care, and to disseminate network messages and resources, including the quarterly Allergy & Asthma Today.
