EXPERT Q&As 

The Allergy Team is fortunate to have the support of allergy experts, including consultants, nurses, dietitians and psychologists, who join us for regular presentations and Q&A sessions.

Typically, these hour-long webinars work like a conversation, with a member of The Allergy Team putting your questions to the expert in the hot seat.

Sometimes we cover anything and everything and on other occasions, we focus on a particular topic.
