The Allergy Academy, part of the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences, was established ten years ago by Dr Adam Fox for healthcare professionals on the frontline of delivering care to patients with allergies. The vision of the academy is to provide education in allergy to a diverse audience of doctors, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, patients and their families.
The academy has run hundreds of courses, delivering education to over 10,000 delegates. They also produce many great online resources and webcasts.
The team will present their work to an expert judging panel, including patient representatives, on 10 May, with the winners announced at an evening black tie ceremony in Westminster Bridge. Good luck to the Allergy Academy
