Description:

The World Allergy Organization (WAO) is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it has a global reach that extends out to international congresses, forums, and conferences. The website offers information for visitors who are health professionals, caregivers, or allergy suffers. The "Education in Allergy" link on the menu allows visitors to access the "Allergic Diseases Resource Center", which can be read in English or Polish, and covers food, drug, and insect sting allergies, as well as asthma, skin, and other respiratory allergies. Visitors will find the information is divided up by "Professionals" or "Patients", and the Patients section offers an anatomical diagram which can be scrolled over to find the corresponding allergy. Once visitors have chosen an allergy to learn about and clicked on the highlighted area, there is a thorough, but easily readable, explanation offered on a new page. Visitors interested in receiving the e-newsletter WAO News and Notes, can sign up for it by clicking on the "Receive the E-letter" link at the top of any page.
