       About the NESA Allergy Nurses Update
The Allergy Nurses Update is one of the most essential and
successful educational components of the Spring New England
Society of Allergy meeting. This update is offered each spring
meeting of the society. It is a one-day program designed for
allergy nurses by the clinical staff members of the society.
The Allergy Nurses Update is organized by a dedicated group of
allergy society nurses who arrange lectures and speakers (many
of whom are society member physicians or nurses) provide
continuing education credits and handle on site activities
(registration, luncheon, breaks, etc.)
The overall purpose and goal of The Nurses Update Meeting is to
provide an annual educational update of asthma, allergy, and
immunology for allied health personnel working the specialty and
to provide a forum for networking.
