Webinar: Treating anaphylaxis and what you need to know about Benadryl®
September 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
While epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, the most serious type of allergic reaction, do antihistamines have a role to play? Join us for an informative webinar that may cause you to rethink what you have in your medicine cabinet or first aid kit.
What the webinar is about: The importance of using epinephrine to treat anaphylaxis, when antihistamines might be given, and what the safety concerns are with first-generation antihistamines, like Benadryl®. This will be followed by a Q&A, where you can ask your questions. Plus, you can submit your questions in advance upon registration.

Day Chair in Allergic Diseases and Allergy Research.
