The College invites all registrants to the ACAAI Awards Ceremony on Saturday at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. ACAAI will formally welcome our newly-approved Fellows and recognize the recipients of the 2016 Distinguished Fellow, International Distinguished Fellow, Distinguished Service, Clemens von Pirquet and Woman in Allergy awards. Finally, we’ll introduce this year’s recipient of the College’s prestigious Gold Headed Cane Award.
