These programs are not sponsored or programmed by the AAAAI. Please also be aware that these programs relate to the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They are separated by CME and Non-CME programs.
A number of sponsored programs that were originally scheduled as Non-CME Educational Programs during the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting have been or will be converted into virtual formats. Some will be live virtual events, while others will be recordings that you can access at your convenience, and some will offer CME by accredited providers other than the AAAAI.
Please see below for a listing of these programs with further details on how to participate. The page will be updated as more programs are available.
Exploring the Role of Eosinophils and IL-5 Inhibitors in Severe Asthma and Associated Conditions
An Interactive Live CME Webcast and Case Simulation
Choose from 3 different dates and times!
Thursday, September 17, 2020
8:00 PM – 9:00 PM (ET)
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
9:00 PM – 10:00 PM (ET)
Until recently, treatment options for severe asthma with an eosinophilic phenotype, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), and hypereosinophilic syndrome were limited mostly to immunosuppression with oral corticosteroids (OCS) or other systemic agents. An expanding understanding of the pathophysiology of these diseases has led to the identification of newer therapeutic targets and more selective and better tolerated treatments for eosinophil reduction.
This interactive webcast will review strategies for recognizing these phenotypes of severe eosinophilic diseases of the lungs and help the clinician better navigate available treatments in order to improve symptoms, lighten the disease burden, and reduce exacerbations and OCS reliance for patients with severe asthma and associated eosinophil-mediated conditions.

CME/CE Online Activity
AIRING IT OUT: A Case-Based Conversation on Managing Asthma and Chronic Rhinosinusitis With Nasal Polyps
View Here: https://www.exchangecme.com/AiringItOut2020
Faculty: Joseph K. Han, MD; John J. Oppenheimer, MD; Reynold A. Panettieri, Jr, MD
This Case-in-Point™ online activity focuses on the management of moderate-to-severe asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). Each segment of the activity will open with a brief multimedia presentation of a clinical case, highlighting the patient’s unique past medical history, current management challenges, and persistent, daily burdens. Expert faculty will guide learners through each case, sharing relevant guideline recommendations, published data, and clinical insights.
Supported by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, and jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) and Integritas Communications.
A Virtual Reality View: New Approaches to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pediatric and Adolescent Patients with Moderate-to-Severe Atopic Dermatitis
Supported by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
While guidelines regarding the management of AD in children have been published, variability persists in practice. Treatment inconsistencies and the chronic and relapsing nature of AD can lead to frustration for patients, family, and caregivers when managing AD. This online activity will focus on providing AD caregivers an update on recent pathophysiological findings that drive new therapeutic targets; reviewing severity and diagnosis of AD; and discussing the clinical profiles of existing and emerging agents, with focus on treatment individualization.
Understanding Chronic Cough
Sponsored by Merck
Chronic cough is often associated with underlying conditions, such as asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease, nonasthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis, and upper-airway cough syndrome. In some patients with chronic cough, treatment of these underlying conditions does not resolve the cough (Refractory Chronic Cough, RCC), or none of these underlying conditions are present (Unexplained Chronic Cough, UCC).
Please join Michael S. Blaiss, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Medical College of Georgia Augusta, Georgia, Executive Medical Director of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, for this non-CME program to learn more about Chronic Cough. Topics will include:
• The disease burden and unmet need in management of chronic cough
• Mechanisms of the disease
• Classification and clinical assessment of chronic cough
You will have two opportunities to participate in this live Program:
Wednesday, October 14, 12:15-1:00 PM ET
(11:15-12:00 PM CT, 10:15-11:00 AM MT, 9:15-10:00 AM PT)
Wednesday, October 28, 5:15-6:00 PM ET
(4:15-5:00 PM CT, 3:15-4:00 PM MT, 2:15-3:00 PM PT)
