The Western Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (WSAAI) is a nonprofit corporation whose members are physicians and other medical professionals who specialize in allergy and immunology. Our primary purpose is to encourage association of medical professionals specializing in allergy, asthma and immunology for the study of current issues and developments relevant to the specialty and the continuing education of those medical professionals. The organizations primary activity is its annual scientific session, which consists of lectures, discussion groups, workshops and business meetings concerning the practice of allergy, asthma and immunology.
The WSAAI continues to attract attendees from throughout the United States and Internationally. The Board of Directors is committed to providing a world-class experience for physicians. In addition to classroom CME, the WSAAI appreciates that the learning continues long after the daylong sessions are complete. To that end, the WSAAI selects meeting venues that are conducive to learning and designed for attendees and faculty to spend considerable time together outside of the classroom sharing their learning experiences.
The Board of Directors of the WSAAI and its membership are proud of their long tradition and look forward to many additional years of providing outstanding continuing education.
