Event description

Description

Allergies, intolerances and reactions...

These all seem to be getting a fair bit of publicity in recent years, are these really on the rise or are we just seeing more and more people self-diagnosing? So what's really going on? Are these trends real or are they inflated?

Join us for a seminar with Dr. Brynn Wainstein a paediatric immunologist and allergist, specialising in food allergies and Immunology. Dr. Wainstein will speak about current trends in immunology and recent research and where the field is headed.
