Webinar 1

The Epidemiology of Food Allergy & Recent Survey Data

April 9, 2024 | 7:00 PM CDT

Description: The premiere webinar of the RASH Specialists Program will take a closer look at the various types of food
allergy on a scale of mild to severe. A specific emphasis on cow’s milk allergy (CMA) will be provided, along with a
deeper dive into the differences between non-IgE versus IgE mediated CMA.

Chair: Bryan L. Martin, DO, President, World Allergy Organization; Professor Emeritus, The Ohio State University

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the definitions of different types and degrees of food allergy, with a specific emphasis on cow’s milk allergy (CMA).
  • Share recent global food allergy survey data to better understand global approaches to food allergy diagnosis.
  • Understand the pathogenesis of non-IgE versus IgE mediated cow’s milk allergy.
  • Describe the epidemiology of severe food allergy, with a specific emphasis on CMA.

Webinar 2

Diagnostic Criteria for Food Allergy

April 23, 2024 | 7:00 PM CDT

Description: An overview of best practices for diagnosing food allergy will be discussed. Information will be provided on molecular diagnosis, oral food challenge and cutting-edge innovations in food allergy testing.

Chair: Ignacio Ansotegui, MD, PhD, Executive Medical Director, World Allergy Organization

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the application of molecular diagnosis of food allergy in clinical practice.
  • Discuss the role of oral food challenge in the diagnosis of IgE and non-IgE mediated food allergy.
  • Describe the various approaches and priorities of pediatric immunologists and gastroenterologists in regard to differential diagnoses and the challenges they face.
  • Provide an overview of innovations in testing methodologies (presence and severity of a food allergy, including diagnostic meters).

Webinar 3

Clinical Practice Around Food Allergy Management and the Role of Emerging Evidence in Shaping Future Global Guidelines

May 14, 2024 | 7:00 PM CDT

Description: A comprehensive review of clinical approaches to food allergy management and the latest recommendations and guidelines from experts and leading organizations around the globe will be addressed. An overview of the various approaches to food allergy prevention and the role of emerging evidence in shaping future guidelines will also be covered.

Chair: Sandra Gonzalez-Diaz, MD, Director and Professor of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Hospital Universitario for the Universidad AUTONOMA de Nuevo León, Monterrey Nuevo León México

Learning Objectives:
  • Provide an overview of food allergy prevention methods including early introduction and late exposure according to the new World Allergy Organization guidelines.
  • Understand the various management techniques for IgE and non-IgE mediated food allergy including avoidance and oral immunotherapy.
  • Review the latest recommendations and guidelines on CMA to understand recent management recommendations for clinical practice.
  • Evaluate the similarities and differences between international, regional guidelines, expert opinion papers and other key review papers, and discuss relevant implications for clinical practice.
  • Discuss the role of emerging evidence and timing around shaping future guideline directions (e.g., what is enough evidence, proper timing).
