How does your Foundation support make a difference?

“Understanding the immune response is like finding a needle in a haystack, in a field of haystacks, in a county full of fields.” Brian Vickery, MD

In a new video, Brian Vickery, MD, Matthew Rank, MD, and Matthew Greenhawt, MD, MBA, MSc – past recipients of the ACAAI Foundation’s Young Faculty Award – discuss how their research is impacting patients’ lives.

In the “Making a Difference” video – featured on the Foundation web page at – they discuss their research in food allergies, immunotherapy safety and flu vaccines in children with egg allergy.

“It’s important that our donors know how their support to the Foundation is impacting our specialty,” said ACAAI Foundation President Suellyn Rossman, MD, FACAAI. “The Young Faculty Award grants enable recipients like Drs. Vickery, Rank and Greenhawt, to dedicate their time to allergy-immunology research, which results in more treatment options for allergists and improved patient care.

“Financial support from ACAAI members is crucial for meeting the increasing needs for allergy-immunology education and research through Young Faculty Support Awards, Fellow-in-Training Program Relief Grants, and other Foundation programs,” she said.

The video is not all that’s new on the Foundation web page. You can now support your Foundation by donating online by credit card.

Your gifts to the Foundation – which will be applied toward your 20K Club, 10K Club or 5K Club contribution goal – may be handled in a variety of ways, including cash donations, through a contribution of stock and charitable trusts/bequests. In times of bereavement, you can request donations be made in lieu of flowers – or easily establish a named memorial fund – to help advance the care of allergy and immunology. The Jean Chapman Endowment Fund for Education was established to help support fellows-in-training travel grants.

The Tithe-a-Talk program makes it easy for you to donate honoraria from an upcoming speaking engagement. Simply complete the Tithe-a-Talk form available on the Foundation page of the College member website and present it to the association/company that is sponsoring your talk. Your donations are always welcome. Please send your contribution to: ACAAI Foundation, 85 W. Algonquin Road, Suite 550, Arlington Heights, IL 60005.
