We are thrilled to host the 1st 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 panel discussions to best share the expertise that we have within Ohio. 

The meeting will be held on April 30, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown in Columbus, Ohio. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Jonathan Bernstein, Dr. Princess Ogbogu, Dr. Kimberly Risma, and Dr. David Stukus.

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