The AAIFNC Bridges to Understanding symposium will include a superb program of the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders and their variations. Also available are poster presentations of observations by Fellows-In-Training. Posters will allow for meaningful discussion and constructive critique of recent research findings made at the bedside, the clinic, and the laboratory. We urge you to participate by submitting your clinical research findings for consideration by our Poster Review Committee. In preparing your abstract, organize it into a statement of purpose, a statement of methods, and a summary of results in sufficient detail to support the conclusion reached. Be sure to avoid the promise of additional data.

  • Submit one page on 8.5×11 MS Word format using 11-point Arial font.
