American Initiative in Mast Cell Diseases:

I had the honor to attend the Inaugural Investigator Conference in May 2019 at Stanford University. "The mission of the American Initiative in Mast Cell Diseases (AIM) is to advance the research, education, and treatment of mastocytosis and related mast cell diseases." AIM will establish a network that will collaborate with Mastocytosis Society and the already established European Competence Network on Mastocytosis (ECNH). During the conference, we discussed updates, mast cell biology, mast cell activation, clinical heterogeneity, types and treatments of mast cell diseases. Dr. Mariana Castells from Harvard was one of the members of AIM Steering Committee and a keynote speaker. She has been one of our consultants to help with officially diagnosing and treating mast cell diseases. It was a thrill to participate in the conference.




Shared Decision Making:

Recently in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology 2019, there was a review page on Shared Decision Making (SDM) for the allergist. SDM is a process by which patients and healthcare providers join together to choose the best treatment option for the patient. My philosophy is 100% in agreement with the conclusion made in the paper. Effective SDM has been shown to lead to better outcomes. SDM should be universally implemented as a key component of patient centered healthcare.
