Named Lectureships and Awards


The AAAAI Foundation provides the opportunity to honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Allergy/Immunology field with Named Lectureships presented at each AAAAI Annual Meeting.

Lectureships are typically established by an AAAAI member interested in honoring a respected colleague or mentor, or a member wishing to contribute to the mission of the Foundation through the establishment of a Lectureship.


Named Lectureships are offered to those committed donors and supporters who have contributed at least $100,000 to the AAAAI Foundation.

Named Lectureships and Awards are offered to those donors who have contributed at least $250,000 to the AAAAI Foundation.
