WELCOME TO THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AUSTRIAN SOCIETY FOR ALLERGOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY
Dear participants of the ÖGAI Annual Conference,
Hay fever and pollen allergies are more common in spring and in the summer months than at any other time of year and at these times in particular many people place very big hopes in you. By means of your research, you contribute to making these otherwise so beautiful months bearable again for many allergy sufferers.
However, it is not just for people with ´pollen plague´, but also for patients with severe immune disorders that you manage to increase quality of life despite illness. Particularly through the dialogue that undoubtedly takes place at events such as the Annual Meeting of the Austrian Allergology and Immunology Society, you contribute to the continuous increase of knowledge.
I am pleased, dear participants, to be able to welcome you soon to the state capital of Tyrol. To note, high importance is placed in the field of health in Innsbruck. Therefore, the Medical University of Innsbruck is amongst the most popular universities of all to study at.
I wish you a pleasant and interesting stay in our Alpine city while you attend your Annual Meeting in November and I hope that the new knowledge you will undoubtedly acquire is accompanied by a lot of nice memories.
Mag.a Christine Oppitz-Plörer
Mayoresse of the State Capital Innsbruck
