We are thrilled to host the 3rd Annual Meeting of the Ohio Allergy and Immunology Society (OAIS).

The state of Ohio is rich with practicing allergist/immunologists and we are excited about the opportunity for fellowship, collegiality, and education in our home state!

 

The meeting is a live event with CME accredited interactive sessions in a variety of formats including difficult cases and case based discussions to best share the expertise that we have within Ohio.

The meeting will be held on April 20, 2024 at the Westin Cleveland Downtown hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.

Confirmed speakers include Dr. Allison Ramsey, Dr. Irene Mikhail, and Dr. Kristin Schmidlin. 

Please join us for a reception, location TBD, in the evening following the meeting to continue to strengthen Allergy and Immunology relationships across the state.

 

There will be non-CME branded presentations at breakfast and lunch at the Westin Cleveland Downtown.

There will be non-CME branded dinner presentations off site on Friday night and following the non-sponsored social event on Saturday night. 

 

Payment for the Meeting will also act as membership in the Ohio Allergy and Immunology Society for 2024 for eligible attendees. We request that attendees who are not eligible for CME register as Conference Attendees.
