This session is ideal for PAs, NPs, nurses, office staff, residents as well as anyone interested in learning more about allergy diagnosis and immunotherapy. ReCAP is a format of short, powerful talks that will cover the breadth of allergy and immunology. These short riveting talks will be given by remarkable faculty who will communicate their passion for the practice of allergy within an Otolaryngology practice. ReCAP is a must attend session for new and veteran allergy staff alike not only for the motivational spirit for the practice of allergy, but also for the practical content including allergy testing and interpretation, vial mixing sessions, dosing, SLIT, etc. Learn More
