Global harmonisation of food allergy management – collaboration, innovation, science and communication

FAMS2017Improved food allergen management is the focus of many initiatives around the world.  Providing the allergic consumer with the best outcomes requires strong collaboration and consistent communication from all food allergen management stakeholders.

In bringing together a diverse mix of key stakeholders, the FAMS2017 program will allow information sharing, new learnings and stimulate collaborative and innovative approaches to the future harmonisation of food allergen management.

EAACI 2017

17 – 21 June 2017
Helsinki, Finland

The EAACI Congress 2017 is a congress organised by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) which offers a unique opportunity to learn about new discoveries and exchange experience with professionals in the field of allergy and clinical immunology.

The theme for the Helsinki Congress is “On the road to prevention and healthy living”. A unifying theme for EAACI, this represents the next step in making our patients’ lives healthy, despite their allergies. With more than half of all Europeans soon expected to suffer from allergy, ensuring our patients have a better quality of life, despite the allergy epidemic, is an obvious goal for EAACI. It is also a theme in the true Finnish Allergy Programme spirit: wishing good life for all people.

The Congress will take place in Helsinki, Finland from 17-21 June 2017, they hope to see you there! Find out more about EAACI here
