We are pleased to announce the EAACI Pediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting will take place on 12–13 November 2021, attended by internationally renowned experts who are committed to sharing new research and findings, and coming up with solutions to the most pressing challenges in the pediatric field.
The burden of allergic diseases and asthma in children has been significantly increasing during the last years, among other reasons due to differences in lifestyles, age of food introduction and industrialization. Allergy is a multi‐system disorder, and children often have several co‐existing diseases, i.e. allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema and food allergy.
These diseases can be debilitating or even life-threatening, and impact multiple aspects of daily life, including school, travel, dining, sleeping and socialising. Families of allergic children and children themselves often face anxiety and stress and need to adapt to diagnoses, management and treatment.
A cooperative partnership between clinicians managing children with allergic conditions in the hospital, emergency services, schools, parents, and the child is necessary to ensure allergic children are protected. PAAM Digital 2021 provides the platform for ensuring that research and science trickles down to this effect and allows experts worldwide to gain and share knowledge on the most current developments.
Plenaries on the skin barrier, a key player in the etiology of atopic dermatitis and allergy; where we stand in research on environment and immunomodulation; asthma during childhood: from preschool children into adulthood; the epigenetics of allergy in children; and delivering better care to children at risk of severe anaphylaxis will be some of the highlights in the rich scientific programme that is currently being developed.
PAAM Digital 2021 will this year be delivered in an interactive digital format, which will enable delegates to watch plenaries and symposia on two tracks at their own pace and from the comfort of their homes. Virtual networking opportunities, including digital learning lounges, will be offered to meet and discuss topical issues with like-minded participants and experts.
We look forward to seeing you at PAAM Digital 2021, and working towards ensuring the best futures for our children, while guaranteeing the highest standards of care are implemented and shared within our specialty.
