Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues

These are important times in Allergy, as allergic diseases and their co-morbidities, both straightforward and complicated types, are now well established as highly prevalent health conditions that extend across the whole population and most medical specialties. The Lebanese Society of Allergy & Immunology (LSAI) continues to be on the forefront of providing medical education and promoting awareness on not only a local stage but also on a regional and international podium.

To experience for yourself these developments, I am thrilled to invite you on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to attend the upcoming 14th Annual Congress of the Lebanese Society of Allergy/ Immunology on October 5-6, 2018. You will appreciate at this meeting a scientific program that is rich in substance and variety which goes beyond essential allergy education but delves into public health concerns such as Food Allergy at home and school and how to live safely with it, manage it and even eliminate it! The difficult-to-treat allergic, asthmatic, chronic cougher and itchy patient will get special attention in several tailored symposiums. Allergen Immunotherapy for not merely challenging respiratory allergy but also for dangerous food and drug hypersensitivities will be discussed, and rare but serious hereditary angioedema conditions will be addressed for the first time in this congress. Finally, a global look at how the changing environment has and continues to impact allergic diseases, will be featured in a special WAO symposium.

Expect at this congress to confer with colleagues with shared interests and well informed pharmaceutical industry representatives, alongside meeting and interacting with several prominent international and regional experts and Key Opinion Leaders in Allergy/Immunology. Presidents and leaders of several national Allergy/Immunology medical societies from the Middle East/GCC/North Africa regions as well as the World Allergy Organization (WAO) will be attending this special LSAI congress where exciting announcements will be made including pronouncements regarding the prestigious World Allergy International Scientific Conference (WISC 2019) which will take place in Beirut next year.
But first thing first….So we hope that you will save the date, free your calendar and join us on October 5 & 6, 2018 for the 14th Annual LSAI Congress.
