About this Event

Join BJ Lanser, MD, director of the Pediatric Food Allergy Program at National Jewish Health to discuss the research and care of childhood allergies and the “allergic march.”

There has been a significant increase in American children developing food allergies, with many suffering from what is termed the “allergic march.” The condition begins with the development of eczema as an infant, followed by food allergies. After age 4, the child may develop allergic rhinitis and then asthma.

While there are currently no treatments to interrupt or prevent the allergic march, at National Jewish Health, we believe methods to prevent the allergic march and many allergy-related skin, food and respiratory conditions are within reach.

National Jewish Health is a world leader in allergy research and care. Our scientists discovered IgE, the molecule responsible for allergic reactions. They continue to lead cutting-edge research, uniquely positioning us to find better treatments and a prevention for childhood allergies.
