Established 49 years ago, the Philippine Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology aims to promote and recognize the practice of allergy and immunology in the Philippines. Pioneered by the first Filipino allergist, Dr. Arturo B. Rotor and founded by Dr. Felicidad B. Cua-Lim, the first president of the society, PSAAI has come a long way locally and internationally.
Locally, PSAAI is a recognized specialty society of the Philippine Medical Association, a subspecialty society of the Philippine College of Physicians and a subspecialty section of the Philippine Pediatric Society.
Internationally, the society is a recognized member in good standing of the World Allergy Organization (WAO) and the Asia Pacific Association of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology (APAAACI).
PSAAI is 154 -members strong, spread out all over the archipelago. Most are graduates of the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital, University of Santo Tomas Hospital and Fe Del Mundo Medical Center, while others are from international training institutions.
For the 2nd time, as we grapple with the new normal, PSAAI brings to you the 19th PSAAI Convention through a digital platform.
