Event Overview
Welcome message:

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.

Our Members

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.

Submission Info

The WSAAI Annual Scientific Session will include poster presentations of observations by allergists/immunologists and fellows-in-training in addition to a superb program of the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders and its variations. This will afford an opportunity for meaningful discussion and constructive critique of recent research finding made at the bedside, the clinic and in the laboratory. We urge you to participate by submitting your clinical research findings for consideration by our Poster Review Committee.
