COLA Conferences Online for Allergy (COLA)

Conferences On-Line Allergy (COLA) is a collaborative program with the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI).

COLA's provide access to allergy-related educational experiences for the practicing and academic allergist as well as for primary-care providers and the general public. By encouraging a free dialogue about allergy/immunology-related topics, we believe that everyone will benefit.

The Children's Mercy Section of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology generally has conferences on Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon (CDT). 


For audio use mic/speakers on your computer or Dial +1 (213) 493-0603, Access Code: 256-873-866
This code will be the same for all of the conferences.
