Allergies increase your chance of having asthma. In fact it is the top cause implicated in asthma.As such, a clinical immunologist and allergist have an important role in the management of all asthma cases from mild to severe. Clinical immunologists and allergists have a unique skill set and knowledge that also helps us uniquely understand at a fundamental level the pathophysiology of asthma and the treatments used. The goal of the asthma section is to continue to raise awareness by collaborating with other specialties and partners that manage asthma.
