Surviving Spring Allergy Season

Hosted by Maria Lania-Howarth, MD

Spring has sprung throughout the Philadelphia region. For some, this relief from the long, cold and snowy winter is a welcomed event. For others, it means that seasonal allergy symptoms – wheezing, sniffling, sneezing and itchy eyes – are in overdrive and likely to stay that way for months.

Join Maria Lania-Howarth, MD,  for Health eTalk on Thursday, April 14 from Noon-12:30 p.m.. She will provide information and answer questions about managing seasonal allergies, including: diagnosing and treating symptoms; understanding when allergy testing should be considered; and tips for reducing environmental allergy symptoms without medication.
