The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), the largest professional medical specialty organization in the United States representing allergists, asthma specialists, clinical immunologists, allied health professionals and others with a special interest in the research and treatment of allergic disease, is now accepting entries for the 2007 Annual Samter Journalism Awards.

publications written for the general public.

appropriate provider for the diagnosis and treatment of allergic and

immunologic diseases.
