Looking at the lifecycle of allergies and asthma.
“At the Congress in Seoul we will look at allergic diseases and asthma throughout the human life cycle. How much can we determine early on, and how can we positively influence health from the start?” said Dr Lanny Rosenwasser, President of the World Allergy Organization and Scientific Program Chair of WAC 2015.
The scientific program will feature more than 125 Symposia, Workshops, Abstracts and Poster sessions.
