The Year of the Educator: Diagnose, Treat, Educate- Repeat

  • We have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AAE conference.  We will offer a 2020 virtual conference in the Fall of this year to meet the many educational needs of our membership as well as the many many Asthma attendees who become part of our membership as a result of attending our conference.  We have also made the decision to move forward with our next predetermined city and head to Nashville TN in 2021. We are looking to the future and not have COVID-19 impact the necessary education that our membership requires and that you offer and deliver.    We are so very appreciative of your commitment to AAE and we are saddened that we have to make this difficult but appropriate decision for the safety of all.

    The AAE Annual Conference is an outstanding opportunity for information sharing of products and services in all areas of asthma management and treatment and we offer a vast array of participation forums.  By engaging in collaborative learning on all aspects; medications, technologies and strategies, we can achieve improved education and compliance for patients and families.  Your support and more importantly, your active involvement can make a huge impact. Please join us. Contact us at 215-353-2477 to learn more about how you can deliver your message and resources to the asthma community.
