The Children's Mercy Allergy, Asthma and Immunology department provides high-quality care to children and families while advancing our understanding of allergic and immunologic disorders through research.

Our staff includes physicians who are board-certified either in pediatrics or internal medicine or both, and also in allergy and immunology. Our team includes nurse practitioners, a social worker, asthma coordinators who oversee asthma care and education at the hospital, and environmental health specialists. We also have clinical and basic science investigators who keep us at the cutting edge of allergy, asthma, and immunology research.

Children with asthma and allergies have different needs than adults. Our approach to treatment is specifically designed for children and teens, including initiatives like a pediatric asthma disease management program, an environmental health center, and food allergy research program.
