On behalf of the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA), I look forward to welcoming you to the ASCIA 2015 Annual Conference in Adelaide. The excellent program provides an international standard of continuing professional development for ASCIA members and other health professionals. Presentations by international and local speakers will cover a wide range of topics in the areas of allergic diseases, immunodeficiencies and autoimmunity, highlighting some exciting recent developments.
Innovations to the program in 2015 include the addition of the Autoimmunity Update and a Satellite Symposium on Food, Allergy and Nutrition, in addition to the Conference and the Allergy & Immunology Update for Nurses, Dietitians and other health professionals. Although these additional meetings make it a very busy week, we believe that it is an important role of ASCIA to provide opportunities to update knowledge for all health professionals working in the areas of allergy and clinical immunology.
