A free CME live webinar

Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a chronic and complex inflammatory skin condition affecting approximately 13% of children and 7% of adults in the US. The number of therapeutic agents for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis is growing rapidly. An increased understanding of current and emerging treatments as well as multidisciplinary strategies for coordination of care is critical for allergists and dermatologists to optimize patient care in moderate-to-severe AD. 

This engaging activity, led by allergy and dermatology experts who specialize in AD, will provide multidisciplinary real-world insights into considerations for diagnosis, treatment selection, and longitudinal management based on current and emerging therapies.
