Scholarships are available to assist those interested in participating in the Basic Aeroallergen Course at 2019 AAAAI Annual Meeting. Each scholarship is valued at $250, to be paid following the meeting.
Please note: You are not allowed to save your application and continue working on it later, so please make sure you have all necessary materials ready and completed when you begin filling out the application. Once you submit the application, you will not be able to make changes.
NAB™ certified counters at active stations and counters-in-training at new or existing stations are eligible to receive a scholarship.
The full-day Basic Aeroallergen Course will be held on February 21, 2019 in San Francisco. The Basic Aeroallergen Course is an independent activity, and registration for the course does not include or require registration for the 2019 Annual Meeting. This distinction provides a reduction in cost for those seeking to attend only the Basic Aeroallergen Course. Additional details about both the Basic Aeroallergen Course and the Annual Meeting can be found at annualmeeting.aaaai.org.
The Basic Aeroallergen Course provides essential skills in identifying airborne pollen grains and fungal spores. This full day course provides a unique opportunity for participants to update their academic knowledge and practice their hands-on skills, while developing relationships with and receiving individualized feedback from experts in the field. This course provides essential experience and guidance to individuals at all stage of their careers.
Additionally, this course provides essential insight into the important role of pollen and spore counting in the treatment of clinical allergy. Attendance at this course will be beneficial to clinicians treating patients with pollen and mold allergies.
The Basic Aeroallergen Course meets the first step of NAB™ Counter Certification. Those who attend and complete the course will be eligible to pursue the next stages of NAB™ certification in pollen and fungal spore identification and counting. Scholarships for the Basic Aeroallergen Course are intended to assist those currently active in the NAB™ volunteer network, and to encourage those hoping to join the NAB™ volunteer network in the future.
