Educational Materials Patient Health Topics The physicians in the Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology Division place a high priority on patient education. In addition to the patient education and counseling that occurs in the office during patient visits, we have provided a list of topics for patient and family use. The information comes from a variety of sources. One is the University's Encyclopedia of Heath, another is the American College of Rheumatology or ACR. These two sites have not been written by an AIR physician and treatment decisions vary from patient to patient. Information and treatment recommendations made in these sites, may not pertain to you. Always consult your physician for the treatment plan that is appropriate for you. View topics.
