Conferences On-line Allergy (COLA)

Allergy and Immunology Fellowship

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

COLA provides 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 and 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 (Central Time).
