In addition to providing educational resources, the Network is hosting a webinar on Oct. 11, 2018 at 4 p.m. EST. Called “Latex Allergy Myths & Truths: What the Evidence Reveals,” it will feature board-certified allergist and latex allergy expert Kevin Kelly, MD, of North Carolina Children’s Hospital.
