Course Description

In this episode, Michelle is joined by the charismatic Gregg Black, MD, of Carolina Allergy and Asthma Consultants, PA. Dr. Black, from Columbia, SC, (by way of Clemson, SC, Birmingham, AL, Whangaeri, NZ, and New Orleans, LA), shares the process by which infants, as young as 30 days, can begin safely assessing for food allergies…and the best way to go about the diagnostic process! This lecture is the perfect starting point for clinicians as they learn to recognize early s/s of potential food allergies and how to offer guidance on helping our patients reach out to an allergist.


By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  • The gold standard for diagnosing a food allergy.
  • The best method for determining food allergen sensitization.
  • The earliest age a child can begin safely assessing for food allergies and why.
