Learning SLIT--Experience Counts--Tampa, Florida 2015

36 Years ago, as a young allergist, I began a fateful journey which took me hundreds of miles away from my Chicago appartment...It was the dead of winter, and I was freezing and tired…I had journeyed hundreds of miles, and was almost at my destination—a small snow-covered Canadian town.  The reason for my trip?  I wanted to meet—and briefly study under-- a legendary allergist.   As I found the house, I knocked on the door, and a grey haired, elderly man answered.  He had the treasure I was seeking:


The trite saying “nothing beats experience” has a ring of truth to it.  And nowhere in the allergy field is this more true than in the area of Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT).  At our upcoming meeting in Tampa Florida “Advancing Allergy Treatment Through SLIT” those attending will have the benefit of learning a program of SLIT administration—The La Crosse Method-- that is based upon a synthesis of decades of clinical experience combined with the latest scientific research.   It is the only SLIT protocol based on over four decades of experience with over 120,000 patients. 

Nothing can compare to it.  

Need further convincing?  For a quick overview of how the La Crosse Method compares to other SLIT "protocols", download the powerpoint slide presentation here.  

Dr. Mary Morris and myself together share over 60 years of experience in utilizing SLIT, and modifying The La Crosse Method SLIT protocols based on our experience as well as the latest scientific research. 

SLIT is the wave of the future.  But at the meeting you can learn a protocol that gives you the benefit of that experience, and apply it to your patients.  Now. 

So join us in Tampa Florida--your journey for SLIT experience will be  a lot warmer and easier to get to than the Canadian town I traveled to years ago!
