Together with Allergy & Asthma Network, we look forward to helping the pediatrics community stay informed about the latest in the care of children with allergies and asthma and help them take control of their condition.

Consultant for Pediatricians, a leading publication in the field of pediatrics, has announced a collaboration with Allergy & Asthma Network, the leading nonprofit organization whose mission is to end the needless death and suffering due to asthma, allergies, and related conditions through outreach, education, advocacy, and research. The goal of this partnership is to educate and update pediatricians on the latest research related to allergy and asthma in children through the Consultant for Pediatricians print and digital brand.

“This collaboration will help develop quality improvements related to care inside and outside the medical home,” said Consultant for Pediatricians editorial board member John W. Harrington, MD, a professor of pediatrics at Eastern Virginia Medical School and director of General Academic Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters in Norfolk, Va. “The partnership will especially help within schools by sharing information such as the network’s Asthma Action Plans providing individualized therapy guidelines, and the need to make epinephrine auto-injectors available to all children at school in case of an anaphylactic reaction.”

“Because treating allergies and asthma is such an important part of pediatric health care, the readers of Consultant for Pediatricians will welcome the journal’s expanded content from clinical experts in this therapeutic area,” said Michael Gerchufsky, ELS, CMPP, managing editor of Consultant for Pediatricians. “Together with Allergy & Asthma Network, we look forward to helping the pediatrics community stay informed about the latest in the care of children with allergies and asthma and help them take control of their condition.”

“Pediatricians play a crucial role in the patient-centered healthcare team for the 50-60M Americans living with asthma and allergies. This partnership will ensure families receive guidelines-based care and aid to improve outcomes,” said Tonya Winders, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allergy & Asthma Network.
